The story takes place on earth, in a near apocalyptic future, Blanca is pregnant and a widow, she is offered to be part of the crew of a spaceship, a Noah’s Ark to save humanity.

At the same time, Valentina (na Blanca’s 30-year-old daughter), already lives in the ship and feels a great fascination for the land. He receives a message from his mother for his birthday. Blanca tells him that she no longer believes in a possible future for humanity outside the earth, and suggests that he change the past and not end up getting on the ship.
