Anselma’s friendship with her new friend, Luisito, causes the ice around her heart to melt. Old memories resurface: a lost adolescent friend, a disappointing marriage, and the abrupt ending of her teaching career. When a malicious neighbour tries to sabotage her newfound happiness, Anselma realizes what matters in life.
