A bitter and methodic Roberto (Ricardo Darín) is a lonely man and owner of a hardware store. Mari is a cheery farmer who attempts to win Roberto’s heart, but he avoids her. One day, Roberto is taken from his daily routine when he sees Jun, a Chinese man who doesn’t speak a word of Spanish, being expelled from a taxi. Reluctantly, Roberto lodges Jun in his house and only after a series of incidents, he learns the dramatic story of the poor man’s life.
