One day, all the members of the family have a reunion to celebrate an anniversary. In the middle of the whole thing, an awkward question appears out of nowhere: ¿Who's going to be Mamá Cora's heir? ¿Who is going to take care of her during her last days in this world?.

Here you'll find amazing actors in a really funny story and if you pay attention beyond the details you can recognize many things that argentineans inherit from their close ancestors: italians and spanish immigrants as well.
