In the novel "Lluvia fina" Gabriel decides to call his sisters after a long period of silence, reuniting the whole family to celebrate their mother's 80th birthday, and to try to repair the old grudges that each has held tightly over the years. Aurora, who is a trusted confidant of all, and the only one who knows to what extent the demons of the past are as alive as ever, tries to dissuade him, as she fears that the attempt at reconciliation will fatally agitate the repressed conflicts. Through a series of phone calls and increasingly bitter conversations, the work reveals the lives of Sonia, Andrea, Horacio, Aurora, Gabriel, and their mother, along with their family history and childhoods. As Aurora feared, the old quarrels begin to reappear as a fine rain that eventually threatens to overflow.
