Alicia (39) is a seamstress. She works designing and making women's clothing, but behind the fabrics she hides the secret of her own body; the nuisance and disconformity that she feels with it after having had a mastectomy as a result of breast cancer. After the accidental flooding of her apartment, she meets Lucia (41), a transsexual woman who is her new neighbor. Despite the tense first encounter they have; these women meet again and start spending more time together. As day and night pass, they begin to be acknowledged in each other, helping one another. With the dawn, both women will find healing and freedom in the middle of the sea.
