    • Synopsis
    • Elías, a young caretaker and field worker, must travel to Buenos Aires to be employed in a work under construction. Sonia, his recent wife, will be waiting for him in the wooden house they both share in a rural town in the suburbs, with their first child in the womb.

      The meticulous observation of daily life, which is complemented with religious gatherings, pregnancy controls, and the calls she receives in the village's pantry, make up this simple love story. The nucleus is the waiting of a woman guided by the uprooting and the social problems that are crossing her, and how this real story tries to interpellate the attentive look of an active spectator.
