David returns to Buenos Aires from Europe. After arriving, David learns that his mother has decided to pull the plug on Bernardo, David’s father.
David oscillates between his past and present, as he tries to find his own place.


David, a 30 year-old Argentinean boy, corpulent, with a flabby body, homosexual and afraid of flying, returns to Buenos Aires from Europe, due to the death of his uncle. After arriving, David learns that his mother has decided to pull the plug on Bernardo, David’s father.
David oscillates between the intimate coexistence with his mother, alienated by the pain of the imminent loss of her husband, and a ravenous desire to fill his existential anguish, spending his hours learning to drive, going to doctors cheaper than in Europe, and trying to have sex with any man who shows him a little attention.
