Two women rediscover love in the face of death. A quiet, magic end-times drama in the remoteness of a forest hut. María and Ana have been a couple for 20 years, but have never lived together. Until the day that Ana is diagnosed with terminal cancer. She decides against having treatment and the women sell all their possessions and move into a hut in the forest. There, they plan to wait for death together. For the first time under the same roof, their old love which had become buried in the routines of everyday life is reborn.
