A boy eavesdrops on conversations in a love hotel where he is nightwatchman; a woman talks to her ex when he is on the TV; a blind couple quarrel. After years of military dictatorship, looking for something 'good' and 'beautiful' in the increasingly hectic Argentine capital is increasingly difficult. The central metaphor in Agresti's kaleidoscopic film about Buenos Aires is the story of a young woman who lost her parents in the 'dirty war' and is now commissioned by a wealthy and elderly couple to make a video of the city they no longer dare to visit. They don't like the pictures taken by the girl.
