After years gone, Ana returns to her village due to the death of her father. Her intention is to leave after her funeral but she feels the need to stay, fueled by the intention of a power company to install a wind farm that divides the neighbors and affects her family’s land.

Her participation in this conflict draws her back into the life of the community. A process in which Ana questions her sense of belonging, evokes a painful past and discovers a fighting spirit that she did not know she had.
