Plot Summary

The Díaz are an influential and well-to-do family who control much of the poultry industry on the island of Puerto Rico. Arcadio is the family patriarch, an authoritative and conservative man who rules over his family's destiny as he does over the chickens on his farm. Teresa, his eldest, left home during her college years to become an astrophysicist against her father's wishes. Now, after a 7-year absence, she returns home for a few weeks in order to reveal a secret long kept from her family and to invite them to her wedding with Daniela in the Canary Islands. But, once back, her intentions turn to dust when she finds herself trapped in the family's old habit of lying. No one in the family is as they seem, nor are they willing to unveil their true selves. Within this world of half-truths, Teresa encounters Andrés, her nephew, a boy with Asperger's Syndrome who shares her passion for the stars. Through his view of the universe, Teresa experiences a sublime revelation: That our worries are infinitely small next to the music of the stars. When the family business is sabotaged, forced to close, and pushed to the brink of ruin, the image of the picture-perfect family collapses, leaving their secrets exposed. The fragile equilibrium that kept the family united shatters. In that moment of disappointment and shame, Andrés, in his eagerness to become a star, accidentally allows for his family's redemption.
