Movie about the Jewish ancestry of the Spanish city of Melilla. It tries to explain the reasons to live life and the historical memory through the experience of their main actresses. It tells the story of Alegría, a woman that lives turning her back on her Jewish ancestry, but since she moved to Melilla and moved to her parent’s house it’s not been easy at all. A Moroccan house helper and Alegría’s best friend will be there to help her deal with her whole family.

Yael, Alegría’s niece, is marrying a boy from Melilla and the whole family will come from Israel for the event. This wedding will be a turnaround in your routine and an invasion of your home. And Alegría is not ready for it.
