    • Synopsis
    • EMILY is a grumpy old lady with no desire for life. She and her flatmate, ALFRED, have cohabitation issues with RAMON -a failed, alcoholic rapper- and his sister, ALEX. But when Emily and Alfred receive an eviction letter, their world turns upside down. Emily decides to swallow her pride and make a deal with Ramon: win a TV talent show in order to save the building and record an album which would allow him to leave the underworld he’s are living in.

      But despite the deal, they don’t respect each other and Emily and Ramon clash continuously regarding the song style and their own points of view about life. When Emily pushes Ramon to the limit (by accusing him of not having a soul), he explodes and comes out with an amazing performance that helps them gain respect for one another.

      With a new song and all the positive energy to win the contest, everything goes down hill when Emily is shot after she defends the rappers against the mobster that is threatening Alex for uncovering his dirty business. Ramon decides to go with Emily (his new grandma) to the hospital while the others run desperately to get another performance date. When the organization threatens to sue them, Alfred saves the day by making an old dream come true: becoming a star.

      All these people, young and old, find in the end something unexpected and much more important: a (very strange) family.
