Just as Julieta (Emma Suarez) and her partner, Lorenzo (Dario Grandinetti) are planning to leave Madrid for Portugal, she has a chance encounter with Bea (Michelle Jenner), her daughter's best friend. The unexpected meeting is a shock to Julieta, who hasn't seen her daughter Antia since she was 18 and leaving for a religious mountain retreat.
When Antia was never heard of again, Julieta reported her daughter missing and even hired private detectives to find her. However, Bea tells her she recently saw Antia vacationing with her children at Lake Cuomo. She reveals that Antia knows her mother is in Madrid, so Julieta decides to stay put, hoping her daughter will contact her.
