This gentle, thoughtful drama from director Fernando León de Aranoa stars Magaly Solier (The Milk of Sorrow) as Marcela, a Bolivian immigrant living in Spain with life partner Nelson (Pietro Sabille). The couple struggles to stay out of poverty, and Nelson barely scrapes through by selling flowers on the streets of Madrid, but the future grows even bleaker when the house refrigerator breaks - making it impossible for them to keep the fresh flowers at home. They obtain a replacement, but to make its monthly payments, Marcela must find a job, and winds up assisting an elderly, bedridden man, Amador (Celso Bugallo). With his family members away for the summer, caregiver and patient manage to overcome initial obstacles and form an enduring bond, though in time unforeseen events arise that threaten to topple the relationship.
