Siblings Gilda and Lucas arrive at a small, desolate town on the Atlantic Coast to visit the now-empty house that belonged to their late mother.
What at first seems like a farewell gesture to their mother, is in fact a of brother and sister, who have found themselves abandoned and must now come to terms with their loss. A bus company strike is keeping them from going back to Buenos Aires and the two land up stranded in a town they’ve very little interest remaining in.
While boredom overcomes them and memories come flooding back, the two decide to test their own boundaries; each in their own way. Lucas starts spending time with an amicable yet very eccentric young man who likes exercising on the beach. The pair will have to learn how to live in the present and let go of the past.
Director Mateo Bendesky serves audiences a queer dramedy which thinks outside the box and ends up being a most pleasant surprise with an abundance of unusual, surreal moments and featuring a cast of surprising LGBT characters.
