María lives with her mother May, in the Canary Islands, 3000 km from Barcelona, where Miguel Gallardo lives. Sometimes Miguel and María go on holiday together, spending a week at a resort in Gran Canaria South; an unusual setting which doesn’t often have among its guests a single father and his fourteen year old autistic daughter. This is the story of one of their journeys, but above all it’s an original tale, full of humour, irony and sincerity, about how to live with a disability.
