Luis died prematurely. Enrique tries hard to play the game of his life. Yet, he ends uo in his solitude, next to his dad's tomb. This absence gets interrupted by Mary and Gold (a girl and her doll). Mary manages to make communication possible between father and son again. But, unlike death, the opened door can't last forever.
