Ximena is a woman in her fifties who learned to live on her own to keep her illiteracy a secret. Jackelin, a young unemployed elementary school teacher, tries to convince Ximena to take reading classes. Persuading her proves to be almost impossible, hence the two women embark on a learning journey where they discover many types of illiteracy and that not knowing how to read is just one of them. In Spanish with English subtitles.
