In Nicaragua’s mountains, one woman decides to defy a fate that is to a great extent defined by machismo culture.

Forty years ago, Swedish director Peter Torbiörnsson started filming village life in the midst of civil war. It was then he met 12-year-old Ninosca, and began to visit regularly. He tracks her coming of age, love, marriage, pregnancy. As the girl becomes a woman, problems start to mount up, owing to societal structures. It takes years, but once her children are grown, Ninosca finds the inner strength to challenge her restricted life as her husband’s maid and victim of domestic violence. She wants nothing more than to live with dignity. She decides to leave her family for a while and stand on her own two feet. She heads to Spain in search of a good job. Perhaps this way she can return and fulfil her dream – a coffee plantation of her own.
