When Rómulo, a private investigator, places an ad in the paper seeking to
hire a pensioner, 83-year-old widower Sergio jumps at the chance. His task is
to move into a nursing home in order to keep tabs on the elderly mother of
Rómulo’s client, who suspects the institution’s staff of mistreatment. This
Chilean documentary is part spy comedy, part deeply personal observation of old
age – a time of great compassion but also of loneliness.
