The Hogar is a paradoxical world in which the precocious maternity of a group of teen moms lives together with the vow of chastity made by the nuns who welcomed them, between rigid rules and Christian love. Sister Paola has just arrived in Buenos Aires from Italy to finish her novitiate and take her final votes at the Hogar, an Italian religious center for teen moms in Buenos. Lu and Fati, both 17, are children abruptly converted into mothers. Three different women who will influence each other’s lives and their relationship with motherhood.
