    • Synopsis
    • This is a documentary feature about the relationship among three Trans caregivers and the elderly people who live in the nursing home. The time the residents live in this place, could be months or years, is a time to wait for nothingness. Day by day caregivers propose living instead of just surviving. Ones rejected as elderly, the others rejected as Trans, they create a bond which challenges what society imposes.
