For Rodolfo, life at home feels empty and cold, as if he doesn’t belong there. Meanwhile, his first wife Graciela and their teenage daughter, Ana, are going through defining moments in their lives. Subtly, Rodolfo will try to slip back into the place he once had next to them and walked away from ten years ago.
