After spending five years of her life as a low-paid immigrant in Spain, Ninosca is finally granted an official European residence permit. As a European citizen she can visit her home in Nicaragua, knowing that she has the right to return to Spain. Her plan had originally been to work for two years in Spain, supporting her family in Nicaragua. But as circumstances changed, six long years passed. During this time, Ninosca’s encounter with Europe had made her feel free. Looking back at her home country now, she realises that she will find it hard to live there again. She does not want to return to the man she left behind and to a life of fear and abuse.
Ninosca’s children stayed with their father in Nicaragua whilst she worked double shifts to support them and pay for the children’s education. Her daughter Jenny is studying pharma-cology and her son Miguel computer science. 40 years ago, director Peter Torbjörnsson worked as a reporter in Central America. In Nicaragua he met a man who had committed a murder. One thing lead to another and Peter became friends with the parents of the victim, Gregorio and Soledad and their seven children. One of them, Ninosca, was 10 years old at the time and interested him particularly. This was to be the beginning of a 40-year project portraying Ninosca’s life. The film is the third and last film of a trilogy about a woman’s struggle for independence which requires her to face her past in the macho-culture of Central America. The first two films of the trilogy are ”The Lovers of San Fernando” and ”Last Chapter”.
