Complete Storyline and information about Ema
Not every adoption has a good ending. Ema (Mariana Di Girolamo) and Gaston (Gastón) took Polo in, but eventually gave the adopted son back. They can’t raise him together and the couple relationship also comes to an end.
Now Ema is without a concrete goal. The young dancer now drifts through the Chilean coastal town of Valparaíso, trying to leave her feelings of guilt behind. Brief encounters that end in fleeting sexual relationships are meant to distract her. At the same time, a plan is forming inside her to find her way back to the balance – not only on the outside, but also on the inside – that is so important for her profession. (ES)
