      Through the lives of 6 women, the documentary shows us the different relationships that these characters engage with food. Food is synonymous with affection, company, reward, punishment, social status, illness, health, poverty, wealth.

      The plate of food transcends the border of the nutritious, the food is crossed by emotional, cultural and economic relations.

      The documentary is set in Venezuela and Argentina. It is a reflection on Argentina: the most overweight country in South America and denounces the economic emergency of Venezuela, to make us think about food as a political act.
