Synopsis

Melissa (Valverde) is a shy 15-year-old virgin who feels increasingly distant from her family. Her father works on a foreign oil rig and her mother (Sacci) is too preoccupied with her housewife persona to notice that something is wrong with her daughter. The only person that senses Melissa's discomfort is her grandmother, Elvira (Chaplin). However, Melissa feels completely isolated when Elvira is carted off to a retirement home.
