Julieta (Erica Rivas) is a divorced mother of two young boys, Valentin (Nicasio Galan) and Teo (Zenon Galan). Julieta struggles to get by on a limited income and a busy schedule, and she's having a particularly bad day -- while her ex-husband Guillermo (Ruben Viani) was supposed to have the kids this evening, he's late getting back from a business trip, and as she struggles to finish an important report for work, the boys are arguing and refusing to obey her orders to go to bed. When Teo falls from his bunk bed while scrapping with his brother, Julieta thinks he might be hurt and takes him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital room.
