    • Synopsis
    • A hot and wet summer in Córdoba, Argentina. Two women start living together in a house that captures them, shelters them, and keeps them away from the outside world. Busy bees buzz and the constant chirping of the cricket announces a weather change. The house is only visited once and again by a lover that helps taking care of the garden. One of the women is a veteran underground theater actress who is preparing a monologue for the premiere of her latest play. The other one kill’s time looking for her lost Persian cat, watering plants and remembering her late husband. The storm arrives and the place is left clean and fresh, but the insect has entered the house. It’s not the most worrying of presences: a terminal illness will strain the atmosphere inside the house.
