Neneta lives without responsibilities or plans in a motor home on the Spanish coast. When her partner ‘Wolf’ disappears without explanation, she decides to return to her hometown in Galicia. Not so easy: going back to her mother’s, finding a job. Until she’s offered a job as a construction worker. With courage and a sense of humor, she copes with working hard and being a woman in a man’s world.
She grows stronger and more independent as her group starts to get known as ‘The Aces’ for being the fastest builders around town. She starts dating an old friend, getting along with her mother and stabilizing her life. But then ‘Wolf’ reappears, and Neneta is forced to decide whether to run away with him again or to stay and build a life for herself and her child.
