Diego Gutierrez had the courage to make an uncomfortable film about his parents. It is the bittersweet story of two lovers who have completely grown apart. They live in worlds of their own, a huge villa, surrounded by barbed wire, on a country estate near Mexico City. Diego's father will soon turn 80 and wants to go parachuting. His mother is lonely, tired and angry. The underlying resentment grows ever more tangible.
