Synopsis: Belen is sixteen years old and lives in a mad house. Her father, very old and confined to a wheelchair, insists on starting to organize the enormous inheritance that corresponds to her. Her brother seems to know things that everyone hides from her. Regarding her mother, it's best not to speak: barely a few phone calls with bad coverage and not a visit ever since, the brothers being little, she suffered an episode that ended in her hospitalization. And yet Belen wants everything to be normal and to follow the advice she has heard since she was a child: "Tiger nut blood, darling. No matter what happens, one must be cold-blooded."
With the rhythm of comedy and the breath of drama, Luisa Castro weaves a great novel about the breakup of a family and about what we will never know about others: what occurs behind closed doors.
