A once-famous actress, her now disabled husband/former co-star, the writer of their greatest hits and their director-turned-weasel-hunter form an unusual family in a decaying mansion in the countryside outside of Buenos Aires. Their bickering and constant clashes are no different than the ones they once experienced on a movie setbut can their friendship withstand the threats posed by a scheming pair of young real estate investors? And what mysteries will the two millennials uncover as they entangle themselves in the fading stars' lives?

It's Sunset Boulevard meets The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with a Latin twist. Financial gain, seduction, betrayal and memories run amok are the chess pieces in this delightful game of cat…and weasel. D: Juan José Campanella, Argentina, subtitled, 2020, 2h6m
