Blanca is an eighteen-year-old single mother who lives in a halfway house near Santiago. The house is run by Father Manuel, who is socially active in his community and has been fighting for marginalized youth for over thirty years. The two protagonists – interpreted by Laura López and Alejandro Goic – unwittingly find themselves at the centre of a sex scandal that involves politicians and businessmen, too. Blanca ends up in the eye of the storm, at once victim and perpetrator in an incident the whole community will have a role in.
