A dignified mother who is about to become the recipient of some very bad news unexpectedly turns the tables on her recently laid-off son in director Santiago Carlos Oves' award-winning family drama. Jaime is a family man whose wife and two children mean the world to him.
His 82-year-old mother has always taken pride in her independence, and when Jaime and his wife Dorita purchase an apartment for Jaime's mother, the aging woman couldn't be happier.
Unfortunately Jaime has recently been laid off by his company, and in order to maintain the payments on his beautiful house and support his family, Jaime realizes that he will have to sell the apartment in which his mother currently resides.
Upon breaking the news to his mother, however, Jaime soon finds that his own revelation is just the tip of the iceberg, and that dear old mom has some pretty shocking news of her own to share.
