Four stories about contemporary Buenos Aires.
La querencia (The wish): a provincial takes on the big city. Vida y obra (Life and works): a stonemason from Paraguay is disturbed by an unusual encounter. Esta todo mal (Everything is going badly): everything, even love, is alien to an adolescent. Companeros (Comrads): despite himself, a man ends up involved in a political intrigue.

"Buenos Aires today. A time of fighting and frustrations. An alien, inaccessible, end-of-the-century world. Bad times?" (N. Saad, M. De Rosa, S. Roselli, R. Moreno).
