Synopsis:

 Six Middle-Aged women are learning to live with chronic pain and the associated symptoms of Fibromyalgia (FMS), but nothing compares to living with the shame that comes with this gender specific illness. In a general context of suspicion they live misdiagnosed, overmedicated and accused of exaggerating and faking their disease, but when they meet Dr. Palop and his team of humanist doctors things start to change. Shedding light over the patriarchal structures still operating within spanish society and the medical establishment, this affecting and poetic film with feminist overtones opens a necessary dialogue for the history of wellbeing.
