Summary:
Hernan (Ignacio Toselli) is a standard twenty-four years old with an
unstable job as messenger. His family emigrated to Spain to flee the
country's crisis, leaving him alone in his family house, empty and only
full of memories. He meets and falls in love with Patricia, 'Pato' Moro
Anghileri), who works at a petrol station. Pato then is in need of a place
to stay, he offers to rent one of his rooms to her and shortly after she
moves in an idyllic relationship develops. Suddenly, relatives of Pato
arrive to the city and come to stay for one night at the house. The family
is respectful and it is easy to like them, but time passes and they are
not leaving. Hernan's bewilderment becomes even greater when unexpectedly
Venancio (Oscar Nuñez), Pato's father, installs some old machinery and
sets up a pastry factory in the living room of the house. Hernan thinks
about forcibly evicting them from the house, but Venancio resists every
attempt to do that and gradually takes over the place, seducing unemployed
and illegal immigrants with promises of fast prosperity. Hernan's life
turns into chaos, Pato is constantly apologizing to him, but slowly takes
more distance and Hernan no longer knows whom to trust... on top of it
all, he himself becomes unemployed.
