Anita, the oldest prostitute of the city, keeps giving herself for a few cents. Gloria, the only female fisher in Lima's harbor, works without limits to support her family. Carmen and Juan, a couple of mimes still active despite their advanced age. Four unique destinies that ignore each other; skin that resists, love, fight, change, age... Just like Lima, the city steeped in them.
