When estranged siblings Luisa and Gabino visit their parents in an eerily deserted mining town in the north of Mexico, the presence of Luisa’s affable actor boyfriend, Paco gives rise to awkward scenarios. Their father’s seeming ambivalence toward his children is suddenly transformed by his fixation on Paco’s role in a famous narco-themed television series. Hilarious, bittersweet incidents, replete with simmering tension become nested in a parallel reality fueled by Gabino’s active imagination and need for escape.
