This sensual and complex love story traces the love lives of two women, a director and her actress, as they traverse the rocky path of love, domesticity and infidelity. Swinging back and forth between the past and present, we trace the developing love story of Eva (Silvia Varón) and Candela (Alejandra Lara) as they first meet on a film set and find a creative kindred spirit in each other, which eventually blossoms into love. Over the course of years we see the women’s relationship swing from giddy highs to painful truths as they try to find a way back to the passions they once shared creatively and personally. Brilliantly portrayed by the two female leads, this is a bittersweet and intimate look at the constantly evolving nature of love.
