Micaela abre su Twitter y se encuentra con una palabra que la destruye: traidora. Lo peor es que esa acusación proviene de su mejor amiga, Constanza. A partir de ese momento, Mica intenta recomponer la historia que la llevó a actuar como actuó. En ese camino de recuerdos y pensamientos, de luchas y confesiones, saldrán a la luz secretos muy dolorosos. ¿Qué hará al final? ¡Su destino depende de lo que tú decidas que ella haga!
Bruno planea huir. Huir de su casa, de su familia o lo que queda de ella, luego de la muerte de su padre. Ya no tolera ver cómo se desintegra todo lo que para él era importante. La actitud de su hermano Guillermo y la aparente indiferencia de su madre agravan la situación. Solo la música que escuchaba su papá le transmite algo de paz. Bruno y Guille, sumergidos en la batalla por sobrevivir al duelo, se enfrentan el uno contra el otro; en ese combate deberán confrontar a alguien más: ellos mismos.
Agustina tiene un carácter fuerte y una gran debilidad: su hermana Renata, a la que viene notando rarísima. Aunque Agus escucha conversaciones a escondidas, no logra averiguar qué pasa. Lo que sí sabe es que Lalo (el novio de su hermana) la tiene harta, que adora a su perrita Hakuna (que comparte con su mejor amigo Maxi), que confía en su mamá, que su papá parece triste, que admira a su tía Ceci, y que su abuelo necesita más cuidados. Cuando la verdad de lo que se esconde salga a la luz y los golpee a todos, se pondrán a prueba la fortaleza de la familia y la de los amigos. Y ella querrá resolver las cosas a su manera. ¡A la manera de Agustina!

Even If He’s Not Here Bruno plans to run away. Flee from his home, and from his family- or what's left of it - after his father's death. He can’t tolerate seeing everything that matters disintegrate. His brother Guillermo’s attitude and the apparent indifference of his mother only aggravate the situation. Only the music his father listens brings peace to the situation. Bruno and Guille, immersed in the battle to survive the duel, face each other. In that fight they must also face someone else: themselves.
Even If She’s Here Morgana has thousands of followers on social media. With her insinuating selfies that causes envy in girls and admiration of boys. But the perfect virtual world that she shows doesn’t exist. It’s just a way she escapes her life and a reality that nobody would imagine seeing from her photos on the internet.
Suggested age: 10+
Agustina’s way: Agustina has a strong character and a great weakness: her sister Renata, whom she has noticed is weird.

What she does know is that she loves her dog Hakuna (who she shares with her best friend Maxi), that her father is sad, that her grandfather needs more care and that her sister’s boyfriend Lalo is fed up. When the truth comes into the light she’ll want to solve things in her own way. In Agustina’s way!
