This is a story of crossgenerational conflicts between mothers and daughters told in an exasperated and grotesque way. A girl is fleeing from a robbery that went wrong. After years of silence, she turns to her mother to ask her for help because certain "ties" are impossible to loosen, especially if they are blood ties. But, the girl's mother, too, needs to get some satisfaction, and there is a disquieting juice mixer in the way.
