Valentina (6) spends most of the time in the fictional planet created by herself in her neighbour Cecilia’s (71) garden. Isolated from the real world problems with her spacesuits, her imaginary friends and crayon drawings, Valentina has her world shaken by the arrival of Cecilia’s grandson Francisco (15), a boy who also uses his drawings as a way to deal with his trauma, and that will help her find a safe way toward the real world.
