Two faces of the same country: a chaotic and violent city and a rural paradise containing some of the oldest mountains on the planet. Two protagonists who find each other at a crucial moment. Two brave journeys, one that begins as a children's adventure and ends up on the other side of the country, and a one-way trip, free and determined. Sixtyish Martina arrives from Spain to La Gran Sabana in southeastern Venezuela: she intends to die atop Mount Roraima. These plans are interrupted by the unexpected arrival of her 12-year-old grandson Lucas. Destiny will bond them. Without knowing it, they are part of an unbreakable family circle. There will be second chances and choices to be made. All ending up with this lesson: destiny is what you choose for yourself.
