Simplemente deja que ocurra

Lara vive en uno de los barrios m�s peligrosos de las afueras de Madrid. A duras penas estudia, trabaja y cuida de Carmen, su abuela, enferma de alzh�imer y su �nica familia. Pero no est� sola, su siempre ajetreada y ca�tica vida la complementan Olimpia e Irene, sus vecinas y mejores amigas. No ser� hasta un encontronazo fortuito con Sa�l, uno de los arquitectos que planifica una serie de obras de rehabilitaci�n en el lugar, que el pasado reaparezca entre los escombros y altere a�n m�s la vida de Lara. �Podr� sobrevivir a lo que se le avecina?

Silvia Ferrase construye con mimo una historia que mezcla ingredientes tr�gicos y c�micos para hablar no solo de relaciones sino tambi�n de realidades sociales dif�ciles como la drogodependencia, los maltratos o la vida de barrio. Un canto a la generosidad y al altruismo en las comunidades vecinales, donde se puede sufrir y llorar, pero siempre acompa�ado. Y donde el amor se convierte en el verdadero milagro.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Just let it happen.

Lara lives in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods on the outskirts of Madrid. She struggles to go to school, work and take care of the only family she has left: her grandmother, Carmen, who has Alzheimer's. Still, Lara isn't alone; she has help managing her chaotic and demanding schedule from Olimpia and Irene, her neighbors and best friends. But a chance run-in with Sa�l, an architect planning a series of community improvement projects, brings shadows of the past that promise to change Lara's life even more. Will she survive what's coming?

Silvia Ferrase lovingly crafts a story that blends tragedy and comedy to give insights not only into relationships, but also thorny social issues such as drug addiction, squalor and abuse. The result is an ode to community, where you may suffer hardship but never alone, and love shines forth as the real miracle.
