Spain 2020, 77 min, Spanish, Hebrew & English subtitles

After six years in a closed psychiatric ward, Eva is getting ready to rejoin the outside world. She waits for a space to free up in an assisted living residence for people with mental illness. From there, she can go on to get a job, have a social life, and maybe even find love.
Charismatic and spirited, Eva opens up to anyone willing to listen. Her stories gradually reveal the hardships that had led her to drug addiction and to the mental health ward. But the past could not diminish Eva’s need to love and be loved. In fact, it has done the opposite. Her vast emotional capacity is evident when she meets her elderly mother and finds a new lover, but mostly, it comes into play in her attempts to find the son who was taken from her twenty years ago.
