‪Pato (Moro Anghileri) works at a gas station and accepts a room for rent from Hernán (Ignacio Toselli). Hernán lives alone in the family house since the recent departure of the last members of his family, who emigrated abroad in search of better fortune. Soon, Pato and Hernán settle into an idyllic romance until one good day, Pato’s family appears, camping out in the living room. Her father Venancio (Oscar Nuñez), who is determined to get ahead of the crisis by making churros, along with her mother, and little Lili, Pato’s daughter to Hernán’s greater surprise. The family claims that it will only be for a few days, but soon it becomes evident that the occupation is going to prolong. Old Venancio sets up the bakery right in the living room, and no sooner than it takes for Hernán to lose his job, there is a resident baker and a whole business enterprise running in his house.
