In this elusive and offbeat exploration of familiar relationships, director Mateo Bendesky explores grief as it festers in a kind of purgatory. When their mother mysteriously dies, siblings Lucas and Gilda travel to the small town on the Argentinian coast she called home in order to dispose of her remains: a single prosthetic hand. Lucas is a slim and pale seventeen-year-old with an emerging fascination with bodybuilding, leading him to local Guido. The two pursue a relationship as Lucas's sister Gilda struggles with her own issues. She is twenty-years-old and newly discharged from rehab with an intense interest in spirituality. The two siblings, stranded on the coast following a bus strike, must come to terms with their grief as they explore their own complicated relationship.
