For decades, Jola did what was expected of her. As a mother of six and the wife of an abusive husband, she would put on her make-up and colourful clothes to pretend everything was fine. One day something breaks inside her and she finds the strength to escape a toxic relationship and start living life to the fullest. She is letting loose with her girlfriends and finds herself thrust into a new romance at a Latino dancing class.

The drama evolves when the conservative powers of her generation try to justify her husband’s violence. A highly cinematic and joyful journey into a woman’s battle to reinvent herself at her best age of life, when she’s nearly 70.
