This story takes place in the cabin of a plane. A woman, who is happy because the seat next to her is not occupied, gets disappointed when she sees Juan Diego –a 10 year old kid recommended by the air hostess- just when they are going to close the door of the plane.

During the flight there is a strong turbulence that will force both characters to get close to each other and share their life stories: they will talk about family, love, divorce, kidnapping and planes (which are Juan Diego’s passion).

All this in a conversation between equals, as deep conversations between kids and adults can be when they are given a chance.
