Olinda is the owner of a simple restaurant, the center of a small community of regulars, in a residential neighborhood of Buenos Aires. One day a young German man who came to Argentina looking for a lost love, the same reason Olinda herself came from Italy four decades earlier, walks in the door. What follows is a sweet film about friendship, emigration, dreams, with a lot of sensitivity and some touching dialogue. Assuming you enjoy films that don't rely on non-stop action, superstars, special effects and intricate plot twists I am sure you will like this one.
