      At the hospital, after passing through a series of tests, the doctor communicates to their parents that the young woman has not undergone any type of sexual assault. Only has a small gap in his memory because of the beatings and to be recovered in few days. It will take twenty-four hours under observation.
      Clara explain to her parents, doctors, and police that in the drawing class at the Academy her head hurts a lot and went for a walk arround the mountain that gives into the river. She always does. He stepped into the guardrail and, without knowing how, felt. It seems that someone took her up to the park bench. But she really does not remember anything.
      Later and alone, while eating in her hospital room, she hears news on television. There have been three cases of rape in the periphery of the city. She feels a dry pain, austere, in her interior. She suffers an attack of retching.
      After leaving the hospital Clara returns to the school where she is studying. She used make up to hide the blows of the face. Boys in class whisper low when they see her, but she feels enfold by her friends. She don’t speak to anyone about what happened.
      The police will want to attend a meeting of recognition of suspects. They believe that rapist whom they are looking for, can be the one who moved Clara to the park bench. Through the glass of the examination room Clara stare on Tobias, a bum that is next to several more people. But Clara said that she don’t knows him, using amnesia as excuse.
      There’s a guy in school, Ramón, that Clara likes. They meet to go to the cinema. But the day of the event she realizes that is not what is important for her. The important thing is to find Tobias and to talk with.
      Estas dos historias europeas, que en cada una de ellas se habla un idioma distinto, se entrecruzarán entre sí pero jamás confluirán. Tan solo lo harán emocionalmente. La edad invisible es la metáfora de ambas.
      These two European stories, that each one speaks a distinct language, will be threaded throughout between but never converge. So they will only do emotionally. La Edad Invisible is a metaphor for both.
