Lucia is trying to find some balance between her daily routine with her teen daughter, a somewhat complicated love affair and her work as a land surveyor. Things get even more complex as her firm plans to construct a building, which, if completed, will be harmful to the environment.
One day, while she’s at work, Lucia meets Virgin Mary, who assigns her a mission: to build a church on the spot they met, the very spot Lucia’s company intents to raise the controversial building. This moral dilemma is in the center of a surrealistic comedy, aiming right at the viewer’s heart. Th.K.
