La Hija de un Ladrón pretends to explore toxic relationships that nest within the family and configure the adult self. At the centre of the story we find Sara, a 21-year-old woman marked by her relationship with her father: a selfish and intermittent man that has suddenly decided to return.

The solitude Sara was forced into during her childhood and her adolescence made her into a strong and decided woman that yearns for the love of a father, who will inevitably disappear again. Sara fights against the power of blood. She fights to prevent the man who gave her life from taking it away from her again.
