Paola was born in a traditional Colombian family, or at least that is what they try to be. The father is a priest, the mother is a “psychic” and the sisters are not what their parents expect. She is a young Latin American woman struggling for her independence in a hard context full of stereotypes and appearances and not being able to fit in any mold. With a unique feminine vision of the world this girl has to learn to live while she lives as she witnesses a series of small crises that shape her personality.
