Maribel, while preparing breakfast, discusses with her mother. She is tired of her orders in the form of advice when caring for her son, Jaime. Maribel looks perfectly capable of doing it and, in some way, feels somewhat tense because of the difficulty of the moment. Today is the first day of Jaime, and the child must get used to a new place. David Barco Martínez
