It's Christmas Eve in an old house in Lima. Leonardo del Solar, the family patriarch, arrives sick and in a wheelchair with Inés, who was for a time the girlfriend of his son Pavel. Edurne, the youngest daughter of Leonardo, announces she is pregnant and needs an advance of the inheritance. Puli, the son of Pavel, a very special 9-years-old boy, is observing everything: they are the people whom he most loves, but they do not seem to love each other. The family dinner of the Del Solar will become a succession of regrets, tensions to the limit, surprising revelations and, perhaps, a reconciliation. A drama full of dark humor where even the house's pets, a dog and a turtle, are noticed. Who has not gone from tears to laughter and from love to hate during a Christmas family dinner?
