Luisa is a lonely woman in a bathroom, standing alone on a stool in front of a mirror. She retraces her life, and her childhood appears in flashes of memory. The sexual violence inflicted by her own father. The ghost of the past in every man she meets. Only the memory of her mother will bring her some relief.
