When a peace agreement between FARC and the Colombian government looks like it will put an end to 50 years of conflict, Yira visits her mother in Colombia after 10 years in exile. Yira has herself become a mother and wants to give her daughter the family she never had. She confronts her mother, Ruby, with a neglected childhood in the shadow of her parents' political struggles. She wants her mother to join her in exile, so that they can finally be together in safety. But Ruby can't let go of her political ideals. It is not just Yira's childhood that has been sacrificed, but also her own life and safety. As the peacetime death toll continues to rise, Ruby is faced with a difficult dilemma. If she chooses her daughter, she gives up on her people.
