Maria is 40 and has lung cancer. She lost hope, doesn’t believe in healing. She keeps smoking. Now she smokes to forget. On her birthday, she sees herdaughter Beatriz with a lollipop imitating her to smoke… From that moment on it's love that comes to life. The love of a mother who will have to find forces to walk across the corridor of life, with all the memories hanging on the walls and convince her daughter "My love, whatever happens, remember... a princess does not smoke!”.

Motivación del Director de Fotografía
A drama to change behavior, focused on women that statistics show as growing numbers on starting smoking. While preparing with the director was clear the Past, Present and Future. The Past represented by photos that turn into colorful flashbacks where time is slower and from joyful moments we close up to inconsequent actions that shape the shaky Present, Maria’s corridor of self growing. From a hopeless blue smoky hole, passing to a flamed hell and finally evolving to a bright Edens’ garden where the projected image of a daughter in a mother's eye has to be: a happy future!
