Around her, a city that is changing its face, full of construction sites, in which are located the slums of the poorest families a few steps from the residential areas. A changing world and society. As she tries to sort out her personal problems, Adriana is forced to witness the crumbling of her family: her mother Vera is a joyful woman, full of enthusiasm, in love with the children to whom she devotes most of her time. , while Felice is a stern and aloof man who lives away from home most of the day. A fragile balance that risks losing at any time.

Crial paintings a touching and realistic family portrait, reflecting an era of compromises and contradictionsin which television’s brilliant musical numbers act as a counterpoint to a social image that has a completely different tone. And he does this by adopting the innocent point of view of the children involved, drawing on his personal memory. The result of the immensity it is a simple and linear story but full of emotions, with an intense Penélope Cruz and very good at valuing the skills of the three young novice protagonists. A trip to a past that seems distant but is much closer than it seems (not only chronologically) to our contemporaneity.
