The real estate bubble is making a lot of people rich. But Tato, a 50 year-old reckless man-child, has lost everything. He moves back in with his eccentric, bed-ridden mother Rosa, who puts him down every time she gets a chance with the hopes of keeping him inside their decrepit family mansion. Desperate for financial independence, Tato decides to sell the house without his mother’s consent. To make Rosa think she is still living in her old bedroom, Tato places her in a remote, vaguely similar space covered in plastic to create the illusion that the house is being restored for its historic value. For how long, and at which cost, will Tato be able to sustain this impossible farce?
