Cura sana


Spain during the Noche de San Juan festival. Two sisters, 14-year-old Jessica and 8-year-old Alma, are once again on their way to pick up food stamps from the Caritas charity. The violence they have both experienced over the years at the hands of their father has turned Jessica into an angry, self-destructive teenager with a thick protective skin. She even subjects her little sister to her harsh, hostile behaviour. But during the course of their journey together, Jessica realises that she does not want to turn out like her father. She must learn to treat Alma with love instead of violence.
