Synopsis

In the south of Mexico, a poor man in his mid-seventies lives alone in a house near the beach. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have the deed for this property and another man claims it’s his. The old man attends a hearing to resolve the conflict, but nothing gets fixed and he starts losing his mind with memories of his past beginning to haunt his daily life. When he ends up losing his property and his house gets demolished, he embarks on a journey to the mountains in search for people he knew long ago. Even if he ends up finding some of his acquaintances, no one takes him in and the poor man keeps wandering, alone with his memories.
