    • Antonio and Bertha are an elderly couple, about 90 years old who find themselves in trouble when social security pensions are suspended due to a financial and social crisis in the country where they live. Given the fact that their children have not visited them in many years they are confronted with the need to survive alone. The couple is forced to sell their belongings and sustain themselves selling food on the street or stealing. The lives of the two elderly people change when their son Jonas and grandson Paco, absent from their lives for over a decade, appear unexpectedly once again.
