    • The son of a housekeeper who works for a conservative countryside family, comes back after many years of absence to his father’s funeral. His mother, Coya, is waiting for him to do the honors and, to somehow replace the male figure that had been lost. However, he is now a trans woman whose name is Elena.
      The whole family seems to be disappointed for this sudden turn of events. After a confusing accident and several insinuations from Coya, Elena decides to wear her father’s old suit to honor his memory.
      The funeral day takes place during a stormy morning. The rain falls down to clean the house from all the lies.
