Ximena is an illiterate woman in her fifties who has learned to live on her own to keep her illiteracy a secret. Jackeline is a young unemployed elementary school    teacher   who    tries    to    convince    Ximena    to    take    reading classes. Persuading her proves to be an almost impossible task until one day Jackeline finds something Ximena has been keeping as her only treasure since she was a child: a letter Ximena’s father left when he abandoned her many years before.Through this letter, the two women embark on a journey and discover that  there  are  many  ways  of  being  illiterate,  and  that  not  knowing  how  to read is just one of them.
