After the death of his mother, Pascual, 30, is sent to a mental health residence. This new place is just temporary for him, since Pascual is convinced that his older brother, Gerardo will come for him. Time goes by, and Gerardo´s visit gets delayed. Pascual’s hopes start fading in the routine of his life there. In his therapy, Pascual meets Leila, an old resident whom he will start a naive and surreal relationship. A new scope of emotions he never experienced before, will make Pascual start doubting about the temporariness of his stay in the residence.
