Now Playing Synopsis: A vibrant Chilean divorcée falls for a handsome ex-naval officer, but finds any chance for lasting happiness hinging on her willingness to confront a painful chapter from her past. In the wake of her divorce, 58-year-old Gloria (Paulina García) is determined to live her life to the fullest. Her children have all grown up and moved out, so rather than sit home alone, Gloria spends much of her time at local nightclubs and singles parties. Later, just when Gloria has started to realize that her active new lifestyle offers precious little emotional sustenance, she's swept off her feet by a dashing former naval officer in his sixties. Before long she's dreaming of a bright future with him. But true love never comes easy, and before Gloria can enjoy her twilight years with the man who makes her feel truly fulfilled, she must make peace with a harsh truth that could drive him away forever. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Paulina Garcia, Sergio Hernandez, Diego Fontecilla, Fabiola Zamora, Alejandro Goic Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
