In the south of Spain, 1950, the Leon family cares for the estate of the wealthy and bitter old Mrs. Milagros. This arrangement allows them to live rent free in a small farm house on the property. Tea, the youngest of the Leon family, and a tomboy at heart, is constantly finding ways to cause trouble around the estate. Out of desperation, Mrs. Leon confides in her mistress about Tea's poor behavior. Mrs. Milagros' solution is to send Tea away to boarding school to tame the heart of the country girl. Tea fights this decision, but in the end is persuaded by Mrs. Milagros that it is best for her and her family if she goes to the school run by nuns. Little does Tea know that a thirty year old well-kept secret is about to be revealed. A secret that will change Tea's life forever.
