Synopsis

Ariel is a recent college dropout with hopes of escaping a career behind the counter of his mother's lingerie store in a Buenos Aires shopping mall. He leads an alternately bittersweet and comedic daily life with the host of eccentric shopkeepers who have become a strange family of sorts. It could grow into a comfortable routine, but with a Polish passport through his long-lost father and new adventures at his fingertips, Ariel dreams of starting an exciting new life in Europe. Before moving on, Ariel's Father returns and the family is reunited for the first time since he left for war in a shroud of mystery shortly after Ariel was born. He brings with him new truths, a new story and, ultimately, a long-overdue embrace - one that had been lost for so long.
