LAS MENINAS

Belén grows up in a family of hysterical women. When her grandmother passes away, her ex-husband appears to have built up a new life in Belgium and earns part of the legacy. The family is furious and wants to get hold of the money while Belén tries to fight the hatred and travels to Belgium. She wants to know the truth about her family and herself and discovers that wisdom lies in the art of acceptance.
