Julio Nieves, sessantacinquenne caporeparto in un’impresa edile, ha passato tutta la sua vita a Vallecas, un sobborgo di Madrid. Ora deve affrontare il suo imminente pensionamento. La sua vita cambia quando una giovane sedicenne, come un dono dal cielo, arriva da Marsiglia e dice di essere sua figlia. Ma se non fosse veramente sangue del suo sangue? E cosa succederebbe se Nieves la ospitasse per lenire la sua solitudine? Quanto possono osare le persone per non restare sole? Julio Nieves is a 65-year-old foreman who has spent his entire life in the Madrid suburb of Vallecas. He must now face forthcoming retirement alone. But Julio’s life changes when a 16-year-old girl arrives from Marseille, like a gift from the gods, and claims to be his daughter. But what if she were not his own flesh and blood? And what if Nieves took her in just to ease his own solitude? How far can people go to avoid being alone?
