Summer is ending at the Borges family country house. The sky constantly seems on the verge of a storm and too much wine is drunk next to a swimming pool full of rotting water: the life of a provincial bourgeois Argentine family fallen into hard times. Mecha, the alcoholic mother, has recently attempted suicide and, after a separation of many years, her cousin Tali visits her so as to distract her discussing the possibility of a trip to Bolivia. Mecha's husband is failure in his fifties who dyes his hair. The older son lives in the city as the lover of one of his mother's friends, while the teenage daughter is secretly in love with the Indian maid. And the humid, suffocating summer seems to refuse to end as the Borges family slowly burns away
