Synopsis

Can life surprise you after forty-five? Lena is a woman who perseveres in her work, a divorced mother of two teenagers and a possessor of a restless mind that has led her to make a risky decision: to go for her own business idea. But Lena is also faced with the fact that her eldest son will go to college the following year, the feelings that the idea of ​​that "empty nest" provokes in her and the doubts and fears of accepting what all women of that age is inevitable: the approach or the arrival of menopause.

Reinventing oneself, at a stage where what is expected of a person is that they "endure" until their retirement, involves making different decisions. And when Andrés reappears in Lena's life, a barely blurred figure from her childhood, her world will end up turning upside down ...

“I cannot say exactly what is good about having a birthday. The first (and most important) thing is that today I am a mother. Also, that age has given me a serenity that I wanted and looked for in my youth and that I am only now beginning to enjoy. Of course I see girls in their twenties, or my children's friends, and I think about "what is cool" about the time they are living in, what remains for them to discover and experience, in their still childlike beauty, in their longings and in his ambitions… but I like the moment of the journey that I am on now.

What, in addition, I had never thought before and that, nevertheless, I value enormously is how thanks to the years that I have lived (and that I already have) I have learned to take things with more distance. I still don't know how to be "light", but things matter and affect me less. I keep saying yes when sometimes I want to say no, but every time I think more about myself before trying to please the other by forgetting myself along the way. I still don't know how to cook, but I am no longer afraid of cooking. I'm still insecure in front of the man I like, but I no longer let that make me doubt my worth. And so with everything. "
