After the sudden disappearance of her only motherly figure, thirteen-year-old Selva is left to take care of her grandfather who doesn’t want to live. Between shadows and wild games in her coastal town in Costa Rica, she must decide if she will help her grandfather die, even though that means going through her last moments of childhood alone. Selva discovers that when we die we just shed our skin – we can turn into wolfs, goats, shadows, or anything that our imagination allows us to be.
