In 2002, as Argentina confronts a full blown economic crisis, Arturo, a 77 year old veterinarian is abducted in Buenos Aires. Guillermina, his 30 year old granddaughter is contacted by the perpetrators. To face the situation and obtain the release of her grandfather, she is forced to call upon Teresa, her mother, daughter of Arturo.
Teresa lives in France where she exiled herself along with her youngest girl in 1978, following the death of her husband. Her return to Argentina, under the constraint of the current events, weighs heavily over Teresa, who is in constant contradiction with her land of birth.
While mother and daughter search for the money necessary to pay the ransom, tragic events from the past gradually find an echo in the present.
