    Estela feels the presence of her mother´s soul. In dreams, her mother gives her messages. After the emptiness that followed her death, Estela understands that her own soul is ailing because of old wounds. She fears the mountains will consume her but learns to live with absences and pain. In the silent desert she lives in, the living, the dead and the ghosts of the past coexist.
