This film tells the loneliness you feel in big cities these days, through two central characters: the grandmother and granddaughter, the grandmother is an actress and withdrawal and memory loss, who because of his addiction to Alcohol's entering a haven for actors, where your imagination makes her believe that it is a poor quality hotel, the granddaughter is a girl who does not know he wants in his life and seeks to fill his loneliness sleeping with different men. Throughout the film is forming a special bond between the two characters, which will help us understand more and realize that friendship is closer than they thought as long as you accept them as they are. The film through his photography creates a feeling of suffocation in the viewer.
