In an old Mexican neighborhood, Elena is alone in her world. Felix causes a miracle when he enters her life and shows her how to access other universes. Sharing those secret places with him, the child will recognise that her world can be broader and deeper than she previously thought, and that a blind child, like Felix, is much more than his visual impairment.
