Antonio and Bertha are an elderly couple of around 90 years old. Their problems begin when their pensions are suspended due to a social and financial crisis in their country. Since they must survive on their own as their two children have not seen them for a number of years, they find themselves faced with the harsh reality of having to sell their belongings, prepare street food and even to steal. The life of the elderly couple changes when their son Jonás and their grandson Paco, who have been away for more than ten years, appear unexpectedly.
