Lucía is a 10-year-old girl who lives with her mother, her little sister and her Alpaca on Isla del Sol, located in the middle of Lake Titicaca, Bolivia. She sees her father depart lake inside her and from that moment she must face a new reality every day tinged by the constant wait for the return of her beloved father. Lucía’s mind gradually dilutes the memories of her father, mixing them with mythical stories that are told to the tourists who visit her town. Her desire is growing and grows so much that, when the time comes for it to be fulfilled, she fails to recognize in that man who returns the father that she has seen leave her. Lucía, then, realizes that she must fend for herself and that it is her turn to leave her in search of what drives her to turn on her own light and continue smiling at life, through the strength of her, internal and determined look of her.
