The story of a group of four long-time friends, including a beautiful actress from cinema’s golden age, an actor in the twilight of his life, a frustrated scriptwriter, and an old director, will do the impossible to try and preserve the world they have created in an old mansion in the countryside outside Buenos Aires. When faced with the threat of a young couple who could put everything in danger, financial gain, seduction, betrayal, and memories run amok to create the recipe for this delightful game of cat…and weasel.
