Juana Bravo is a young, single, attractive woman who, after being an accessory to a robbery, is forced to escape from the capital, taking her teen aged son Diego with her. The safest place for them to go is San Fermin, her hometown, about an hour away from the capital, where Juana finds not only a hiding place, but also reconnects with her past. This reconnection is personified by Ambrosio, her father and the mayor of San Fermin, with whom she had broken off relations fifteen years before. Soon Juana is going to discover that San Fermin, like many other small towns in Latin America, has become a sort of backyard to the capital and home to a large, unpopular, and undesired landfill. After saving a girl from a fire and becoming an unexpected heroine, Juana will be convinced that she can give something back to the welcoming community by working with her father on the city council.
