Goya = (noun) a momentary suspension of mistrust that occurs when fantasy is so realistic that it temporarily becomes reality. Marco – a long board enthusiast, Denada – an introverted albino girl, and Alba, a rebel whiz-kid, plan to escape from a local oratorio after being punished for their less than ideal academic behavior. They become attached to one another on their journey to escape ordinary life.
