In the summer 1993, following the death of her parents, six year old Frida moves from Barcelona to a Catalan province to live with her aunt and uncle, who are now her new legal guardians.
The country life is a challenge for Frida, and she now has a little sister whom she has to take care of. Often, Frida is naively convinced that running away would be the best solution to her problems.
Occasional family outings to a local fiesta or a swimming pool, cooking or listening to jazz in the garden bring them moments of happiness. Slowly, Frida realizes that she is there to stay and has to adapt to the new environment. Before the season is over, she has to cope with her emotions and her parents have to learn to love her as their own daughter.
