Delia is a young woman who survived a
river-flood, along with her mother and two sons. They live in a poor
neighborhood of Caracas. She works hard trying to rebuild their
lives, but she soon discovers that her sons, William (17) and

While Raiza, the grandmother, is the living image of hopelessness.
The four characters depict an image of a society in which the power
of love keeps people united, in spite of the various challenges.
