Samya and Adrián are two vulnerable teenagers who have grown up without the support of a caring home or any emotional stability. When they turn 18 they have to leave the care home where they have spent most of their lives and face the world alone.
Adrián is a solitary boy who has difficulties showing his emotions and relating with others. Samya is an emotional whirlwind, whose lack of self-esteem makes her desperate to please anyone she meets.
Having struggled to survive on the streets of Madrid, with no home and no jobs, Samya and Adrián find support, company and motivation in Mario, Carlos and Bea, three teachers who now provide the only direction the young couple have in their lives.
Samya and Adrián are alone. They are the denizens of shelters and food kitchens, but they dream of a better life.
We follow their struggles, successes and failures, as they try to keep a roof over their head, find friends and a place to call home.
