Icíar and Fernando are young. They are both going through the most traumatic experience of their short lives: the loss of a parent. But Fernando and Icíar can neither share the pain nor the strategies for dealing with it. They live in different times. Fernando in 1977 in Bilbao faces the kidnapping of his father by ETA. Icíar in 2011 in Navarra faces her mother's fulminating cancer.
