    • Synopsis
    • After a whole life of work at Tijuana, Rafael and Lidia are victims of injustice against their rights and dignity: Rafael learns that due to a paperwork mistake, he will not be entitled to his retirement pension. As for Lidia, she finds out that her employer’s will leaves the entire heirloom to the dog, and that the fortune would only be passed down to the employees should the dog die. In their own way, alone and silently, they ́ll begin a battle: Rafael against a company, Lidia against a dog. Curiously, these struggles are not visible.
