When Nestor, an Argentine worker at one of the subcontractors his father's small factory uses, is severely burned at the end of a day's work, Piero's life takes an unexpected turn. Nestor's daughter Mary arrives to care for her father, and Piero will discover love for the first time and find the strength to rebel against the "adult" world made up of lies and compromises. Director Andrea Prandstraller uses his wit and skill to pull the viewer in, to feel the emotions of the characters, and examines how multi-faceted human personality comes into play when conflicts of interest arise, but also of consciousness, vision, and the defense of different points of view, and where honesty can lead to serious consequences for all.
