Hortensia's father is electrocuted with the refrigerator door; she is fired from work; she discovers that her boyfriend is cheating on her with her best friend. Desperate, follows the goals she wrote when was fourteen: "to marry a boy who is blond like my father and to design the most beautiful shoe in the world." Things will only get worse while she fails to listen to her true self.
The movie consists of a sequence of episodes obviously meant to be cute, whimsical, funny or a combination of all three (Amélie comes to mind, or one of the less focused movies of the Coen brothers). The problem is, on the one hand, many episodes don't seem to connect with any possible human motivation, and, on the other hand, the episodes don't add up to a whole. Also, the script doesn't endow any of the characters with much charisma or anything resembling a sense of humor, which makes the dialogue tedious.
The actors (in particular Camila Romagnolo, who is on screen almost constantly) do the best they can but are weighted down by the script. Film barely bears watching.
