Blue Eyelids / Ernesto Contreras

When winning a trip for two to a paradisiacal place called Playa Salamandra, Marina discovers she has no one to share her prize with, so she decides to invite Victor, a complete stranger, to travel with her.Together, they will find that in order to fall in love, the idyllic scenarios and perfect situations are not important.
