Olivia wants to make a Spanish tortilla, but she has no eggs. She goes to the store to buy them, but on the way she discovers a world of simple beautiful things and forgets about the eggs. She’ll return home time and time again with all sorts of foods and flowers… but no eggs. A simple and circular story in which this endearing character, a bit forgetful, wanders around town in search of eggs, only to get caught up with her neighbors, merchants, fruits, and flowers. It is a story that does not end, or rather begins again and again.
