Drops of smoke / Gotas de fumaca

Bibi is a widow who lives alone in a small apartment, with just her cat for company. At the age of seventy, she has been content to retreat into her own little world, only talking to the neighbours every now and then. One day, though, she is persuaded to emerge from her isolation to come to Juliet’s aid. The two of them end up developing a poignant relationship based upon their shared loneliness, and a mutual dread of approaching death. A stark and deceptively simple tale, beautifully told.
