The story of Cecilia, an octogenarian cleaner who takes it upon herself to restore a Spanish fresco in the church in which she works.

Believing she will save the priest a lot of money by touching up the painting herself rather than employing a professional, she works through the night to restore the prized work to its former glory. But little does she realise her handiwork is about to become an overnight sensation for all the wrong reasons.
