Three Transsexual women work as caregivers in a nursing home for the elderly in Argentina. The residents’ daily life tends to be a long wait towards death. Their new caregivers challenge them to live rather than to survive. Freedom, memory, unforgotten dreams, shape this bond, mediated by tenderness, trust and empathy.
