Synopsis

Cruz is a grandma who's spent years, decades actually, without having an orgasm. Religiously devout, it wasn't something that she considered particularly important, or that she'd even given much thought to... until, one day, while surfing the internet, she again starts to feel those desires and sensations she had believed were long gone. Now she is faced with a dilemma: how can she balance her religious beliefs with this new sexual and sensual awakening that has suddenly come back into her life?
