Six-year-old Frida looks on in silence as the last objects from her deceased mother’s apartment are placed in boxes. In a send-off, her friends follow her car on foot waving goodbye. Although her uncle’s family welcomes her with open arms, it’s only very slowly that Frida begins to get used to her new home in the countryside, far away from her native Barcelona. Moments of youthful exuberance give way to ruminative detachment. At night, Frida prays for her mother, who she misses horribly, while during the day she attempts to find her place in this new life.
