"El ojo y la flor" centers around Juana and Andrea, sisters who live in a future world where fresh water is gone -- The rivers are dry and the canals are full of stranded ships. The lack of water causes the exodus of the region's inhabitants. In this dystopia, Juana reveals the abuse she suffered in her childhood and runs away, and Andrea crosses the garbage and mud to find her. Together, they struggle to find a utopia buried in the bitter vision of extreme capitalism and the drama of migrants.
