Piedad has lived big part her life in Leiroso, a small village of the Bierzo, isolated of the urban world in company of her husband. Both decided to remain in the village, still when their children and neighbours were abandoning the place.

At the age of 76, appears the Alzheimer in the life of Piedad, her husband died does some time, converting like this in the only inhabitant of the place but still like this, the option to go of there was not something that had in mind.

The advance of the illness motivates that Amadeo, her younger son, take the decision to carry to his mother to live with him and his family to the city of A Coruña (Galicia, NW of Spain).

This will cause a radical change in the life of Piedad, in her day by day, in her familiar surroundings and in the memories that she has of her previous life.

In the new life of Piedad nobody knows what is truth, what is memory or what is product of her illness.
