Every afternoon Noelí, a young Dominican girl, goes to the beaches at Las Terrenas.  Along with her boyfriend, they look for ways to make a living at the expense of one of the hundreds of tourists that wander the beach.


As people parade through her life, Noelí has a steady client, a mature French woman who, as time goes by, has found an ideal refuge on the island to spend her last years.
