Beatriz has always loved music and starts a band when she is in high school. Her connection to music comes from her grandfather who died eight years earlier. She discovers that her grandfather’s soul is trapped in his old guitar and he can only be freed if she plays the perfect song—a song of his that he never wrote down. Beatriz is consumed by music in an effort to free her grandfather and sacrifices friendships, the band, and her own wellbeing in the process.
