Martha Reyes Hoffman, is a mexican who tells how, without having considered leaving Mexico, she emigrates to Zurich, Switzerland. Out of love for her people and listening to her heart, she lets out her fears to let in her dreams of stability and security for her and her family. She concludes with a series of stories of women who like her, they live their life in another land. Accompanied or alone – it does not matter –, but with a positive sense.
