Synopsis: Amaia has just become a mother and realizes that she doesn’t really know how to be one. When her partner goes away for several weeks because of his job, she decides to go to her parents house, in a lovely coastal village in the Basque Country, and to share the responsibility of looking after her baby. What Amaia doesn’t know is that, even though she’s a mother now, she’s still a daughter.
