Synopsis: At 102 years old, Elvira claims to be still capable of crossing the Atlantic and revisit the home where she was born by simply skypping over a small washbowl. Driven by the desire to piece together the memories of her grandmother's childhood, Adriana travels from Cuba to the island of El Hierro. Behind the memories of old children's tales, a family story full of hardship and unexpected turns is disclosed.
