15 years ago Luiza left to Spain, leaving her three year old daughter Cristina in the care of her relatives. Upon returning in the country, she finds out shocking truths that she had been kept away from: her daughter ran away from home, is a drug addict and has a two year old daughter that she abandoned in an orphanage. Crushed by guilt, Luiza tries to save Cristina and make up for the mistakes of her own youth.
