Isadora and Enrique live a comfortable life. They have a modest apartment in Santiago's old downtown district. Well into their 80's, they both maintain their independence and live happily with their books, their eclectic art, and most of all with their beloved two cats. That is until, one day, the building's elevator breaks and unable to descend the ten flights down, Isadora is left a prisoner in her own home. At the same inconvenient time, Isadora's passionate "wild child" daughter Rosario and her butch female lover, Hugo, come for a visit with a new "scheme" of how to make them all rich. The one glitch is that the elderly couple must sign over the lease to their apartment. The war between mother and daughter escalates when Isadora, beginning to show signs of onset senility, has a near dangerous adventure and bravely journeys down ten flights and onto the crowded Santiago streets. Once rescued, mother and daughter and their respective spouses begin the slow process of forgiveness and begin to see a new future. Sebastian Silva and Pedro Peirano have made a touching film of black humor and pathos reflecting the often treacherous territory of mother-daughter relationships and the empathy needed to find a survivable neutral ground.
