Fiction. Nora, 30 years old, lives with her Argentinian grandfather Nicolás and regularly takes care of her friend Meri's children. She writes the horoscope in the town magazine, although her dream is to be a travel writer. The death of her grandfather will leave her an old Dyane 6 in inheritance. Although she drives terribly, Nora will set out on an aimless road trip along the coast of the Basque Country, to end up taking her grandfather's ashes to her grandmother's side. The road will soon teach her that she is not a born traveler and that her dream had nothing to do with her, that it was only an excuse to give herself a chance to be free, to grow, to heal wounds and, for the first time, allow herself to be happy.
