One winter´s night, a woman, Pilar escapes from her house. With her, she takes just a few things, and her son, Juan. Antonio is soon on her trail. He says Pilar is his sunshine and what´s more, she "gave him" her eyes. Throughout the film, the characters struggle to rewrite a strict set of family norms decreeing who's who and who does what. They´re based on all the wrong notions. Where it says "home", read "hell"; where it says, "love", there is pain; and where those norms promise protection, they really mean terror.
