Synopsis

Manuela, a nurse and single mother in her late thirties, must come to terms with the tragic loss of her only son, Esteban, when he is struck by a car. She never told Esteban who he was, "your father died long before you were born" was all she ever told him. In memory of her son -- who's his father's namesake -- Manuela leaves Madrid and goes to Barcelona in search of Esteban's father. However, the man that she left behind eighteen years earlier when she was pregnant is now a transvestite named Lola. The search for a man with that name cannot be simple. And indeed it isn't.
