Sex worker Rosa lives with her Alzheimer-suffering mother Antonia, also formerly a sex worker, in a tiny apartment in a run-down area in central Madrid, where the neighbors include nosey Juana for different reasons, transvestite sex worker Lupita and a Russian prostitute, Masha. Masha overdoses early on, leaving her 7-year-old daughter Lyuba, wise beyond her years, to wander into Rosa’s home, seeking refuge.

Rosa es una prostituta infeliz que heredó la profesión de su madre, Antonia, que cree ser Sara Montiel y convierte la vida de su hija en un infierno. La llegada inesperada de un nuevo miembro a su particular y absurda vida, le otorgará una oportunidad única para ser feliz.
