It could have been good!

An Argentinian family in the fifties becomes sad when Pablo, the musician, moves to Paris to improve his skills.

After a while, the mother cannot understand why he does not write a letter. The brother and sister start writing letters pretending to be Pablo.

As times goes by, the fake Pablo sends presents and news about his success but never returns.

Based on a Julio Cortazar story, the viewer wants the movie to finish to uncover what happened. But that is not the most important. The web of lies makes the lives of everything depressing, even Pablo's fiancée who could not understand why he never wrote a letter to her.
