This is the story of Alfonso, a repressed adapter of American sitcoms who at the age of 50 and following the death of his mother, is forced to take care of his father whom he cannot stand because it is a true reflection of his own affective defects and stubbornness. His father is now losing his memory and is barely recognisable as the strong man he used to be. Furthermore, his father is obsessed with the idea that his wife is still alive, lost in a hospital near the ocean. Can Alfonso live with the weight of his own memories and baffling insecurity of present time?
