La vida era eso
Maria and Veronica, Spanish women of two different generations living in France, share a hospital room. A vital and generational crossroads of exchange that will transform the way each feels about life. Against all odds, the young woman dies, and as no one comes to claim her body, Maria decides to take her ashes to Spain, in search of her family. There, she meets a very special man, an Eastern European biker, who manages to awaken in her a long-obscured sensual desire and a desire to live that she seems to have inherited from Verónica.
