Synopsis

Hoping to collect an inheritance in order to finance law school, Maria returns to Serbia to visit her grandmother, Lela, who now resides in a nursing home. Maria soon finds out that her grandmother’s dementia is worse than what the family had anticipated; Lela does not recognize her anymore but instead believes Maria to be a character called “Manuela” from her favourite Spanish soap opera. At first, this poses a great problem for Maria’s plans, but as she starts developing feelings for Milos, the carefree, charming lawyer handling her case, she realizes that she may have more in common with Manuela than just pure looks.
