Movie Info

It's summertime in an empty and heated Buenos Aires. Marcela's world is shaken as her sister passes away, and it becomes estranged and unfamiliar. While still grieving, she will have to deal with clearing out her sister's apartment. Willing to help out, Nacho, a young friend of her daughter's, bursts in. His presence gives way to shared road trips and adventures. During these confusing days, people and conversations from another time will get intertwined, leading her to some self-questioning, as the imminence of everyday life pushes in.
