Original Title: El Vuelo del Tren

Synopsis

Blanca is alone to raise her 10-years-old daughter Aran, and there’s nothing that she wouldn’t do for her. Together they sing, laugh and dream, and face life with an endless appetite. When Aran is reported to suffer from leukemia, her mother knows that she’ll have to gather all possible energy and love to support her daughter in this terrible fight. A fight that will bring the two of them closer than ever, and will allow them to discover the pain, but also the love and magic surrounding them.
