Hard-working attorney and single mother Silvia is already stretched thin caring for her domineering cancer-stricken mother. When she becomes unexpectedly entangled in a corruption scandal at work, Silvia must forge her own path to peace and reconciliation
Life in Bogotá, the Colombian capital, is closing in on weary, likeable fortysomething middle-class professional Silvia (Carolina Sanín) in this intense snapshot of one modern life over several months. Silvia’s fractious, glass-half-empty mother Leticia (Leticia Gómez) has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer; Silvia’s reputation as a public-sector lawyer is under threat when she finds herself in the middle of a blossoming corruption scandal; and her cute five-year-old son Antonio (Antonio Martinez) is being bullied at school for not having a dad – yet another reminder of the struggle of bringing up a kid alone and trying to hold down a big job in the big city. Add to all this a new relationship – Silvia has fallen for Abel (Vladimir Durán), a fun-loving journalist she first met when he humiliated her live on radio – and there’s not much room for Silvia in Silvia’s world.
