Eduardo is Gilda Love, the last “transformist” from Barcelona’s Chinatown, who survives with a miserable pension while trying to continue acting on stage. Her priorities are turned upside down with the arrival in her life of Chloe (3) and her mother, Hanna (25), with whom she will have the chance to have the family she has never had.
