Ximena overhears her parents talking - a conversation she is not supposed to hear. She catches the word, “father,” and starts to wonder why she has no contact with her biological father.
At the same time, life is becoming more challenging for Ximena. At the age where her friends and cousins are having their quinceañeras, Ximena is forced to confront some ugliness that arises with the occurrence of these parties. Feeling like an outsider even in her own community, she begins to question everything about who she is. And when she starts communicating with her biological father, Daniel, her life changes even more.
