In this modern love story, Olivia is fired on Christmas Eve morning. As she reviews her resume over a cup of coffee, her desk in a box at her feet, she looks back on the defining moments of her life. Above all, she remembers her grandmother, Agnese, an extraordinary woman who taught her to look for lucky signs that she records with a Polaroid camera. On the same day, destiny is calling Diego. Emotionally devastated by the suicide of his brother, Diego can only explain life using the laws of physics. Neither Olivia nor Diego realize that they met many years ago at a funeral, and that since then their lives have been crossing and overlapping. Both have been searching the same sky for signs that neither have been reading properly.
