SYNOPSIS

Recycling is a second life. It is a cycle of endless ebb and flow, like life itself. And this is what our main character discovers, a woman about to turn 40 who, in one of these moments between wax and wane, decides to adopt a 6-year-old boy living in Madrid.

She is accompanied on her journey to the capital by the excitement for this new stage in life, but her emotions are not shared by the child. He yearns for everything he has had to leave behind in Madrid.

In one attempt to help the boy find his place, the protagonist takes him to a special place to show him one of the most important pillars of her life.

Yet in this place, try as she might, she will realise that the place where her son belongs is not this one. Once this is understood, both will enter into a new cycle. We don’t know if it is ebb or flow, but it will be together.
