Lucia is a rebellious eleven-year-old girl who feels stifled by the patriarchal world she lives in. Her father is physically abusive, while her mother remains helpless against his violence. One day before Lucia’s First Communion, her father gives his daughter a severe beating. In the morning, Lucia puts on her white dress. Yet, instead of going to church, she climbs the sea cliff and throws herself into the sea.
