In a far away country, a woman is in labor. Two soldiers are waiting outside to take the child: but they are twins, a boy and a girl. The soldiers take the boy, while the obstetrician manages to hide and save the girl. Her name is Rosa.
Buenos Aires twenty years later, Rosa is looking for her brother, he must be somewhere in the world. She finally finds him, and she contacts him by email. He lives in Milan.
Even if she has not received any answer, she decides to fly to meet him. Javier is a student, loves parachuting, and has an apprehensive mother and a pilot father.
He has received Rosa’s email, full of stories about their connection, the terrible reasons behind their separation, about their disappeared parents and the adoptive ones who took him by force. Javier cannot believe anything, but a doubt is in his life as corrosive as acid...
