The plot of the movie is in Spain, it is a story about a young girl named Laura who was given up for adoption. But as soon as the orphanage had found foster parents for her, she was finally adopted.

Years later, the said place has been shut down, so Laura and her husband, Carlos, with their adopted son, Simon, reopened the place like an orphanage for disabled children. She remembered how she loved the place when she was a child, her friends and the games they played.

Meanwhile, Laura set a party to welcome the children for the grand opening of the orphanage that raised her, until an incident occur that made Laura remember dark memories from her past as an orphan and discovers a secret about her son’s new friends.

How far Laura can go for her love for her family and the orphanage?

My opinion: This film is incredible and uniquely filmed, the storyline in 2007, I find it very tense.
