In their dangerous and male-dominated neighbourhood, the girls forge an enduring friendship that continues into their teenage years, as they each strive to prolong their education. Years later, Elena, now in her 60s, receives a phone call informing her of Lila's disappearance and begins to reflect on their lifelong friendship. The episodes are: 'The Dolls', 'The Money', 'The Metamorphoses', 'Dissolving Margins', 'The Shoes', 'The Island', 'The Fiancés' and 'The Promise'.
