    • Synopsis
    • After thirty years of marriage, Rosa still lives by her husband’s rules despite the fact that he died two years ago. Her worsening relationship with her son has left her estranged from her only family.
      The dull routine and stagnation of her life suddenly changes when Rosa encounters Margarita, an old friend and happy spirit. Margarita reintroduces her to the world of tango and introduces her to Juan, a shy divorcee, who Rosa contracts to paint her house. Gradually, Rosa starts to feel attracted to him, but fights with the idea of being loyal to her husband but also wanting to rediscover herself. However, Juan presents unexpected turns and this new opportunity causes her to face up to some uncomfortable truths. Rosa starts to understand her son’s behaviour and finds the bravery to accept the errors of her past, the strength to rediscover her true self and learns that, despite everything, it is never to late to start again.
