The title of the film refers both to Fabiola’s father as to herself: at the age of 30 she turned her back on her career as a porn actress in Santiago de Chile and has returned to her parental home, where her father lives with her elder sister Gina.
Fabiola is initially not welcomed with open arms; Gina is not keen to have someone who interferes with her tightly organised housekeeping. It soon becomes clear to Fabiola that it isn’t easy to leave her professional past behind her. Moises, who offers her a job, turns out to be interested in more, and others also seem to only regard her as the lust object she once was.
While Fabiola tries to improve conditions and relationships at home, an unlikely yet honest relationship develops with the 16-year-old son of Moises. Jairo Boisier Olave brings the story without frills or sentimentality, but with compassion for human weakness.
