Plot

On the first anniversary of his mother’s death, Jacobo (Andres Pazos), the lonley owner of a small and struggling sock factory, hears about the impending visit of his irritatingly cheerful brother, Herman (Jorge Bolani).  Jacobo, desperate to prove his life has added up to something, asks one of his attentive employees, Marta (Mirella Pascual), to spend a few days at his home pretending to be his wife.  Jacobo and Marta’s lives are very dull and repetitious.

However, the game of deception grows more intense as Herman insists they all take a trip to an off-season seaside resort, and Marta’s true personality begins to subtly emerge to both Herman and Jacobo, and the ordinariness of everyday life is finally begins to shift.
