13-year-old Selva has been left orphaned in a coastal town in the Caribbean. The only family she has left is her elderly grandfather, for whom she cares with her neighbour, Elena. But when Elena goes missing, Selva finds herself abandoned all over again. She clings to her grandfather, who wants nothing more than to die. As Selva's environment begins to play games with her, blurring the lines between the supernatural and the natural, Selva needs to make a difficult decision: will she help grandpa end his life, or hang on to the one familial connection she still has?
