Gema’s suicide attempt brings her three children together after many years on the eve of an unusually cold Christmas. Cristina, stubborn and deeply Catholic, assumes responsibility for the mother; Sony, who fled as far as she could more than twenty years ago; Brunito, younger by many years, a forty-something gay man who still dreams of finding the love of his life. A cold front rages and locks them indoors, threatening to bring back the family’s most painful memory and put it right on the table.
