Martin goes on vacation to the Villa Gesell, Argentina, with his girlfriend. They drive his mother’s car not knowing that she didn’t leave them the car’s papers. Although the standstill of the couple’s relationship is in the air, summer days go by lazily in the hostel and on the beach. Then, Martin’s mother arrives with the documents and breaks the couple’s intimacy and exposes Martin’s fragility. Now he is stuck playing the roles of a son and a man in front of the two women. The mother also hides the real purpose of her visit and Martin confronts her about it. In the midst of conflict, a lightning strikes nearby and takes the lives of four young people on holidays. This real event confronts the protagonists’ situation with questions about life and death.
