It´s been several years since an inner city neighborhood was deserted by its inhabitants. And yet, some people have decided to stay–out of choice rather than necessity–because they were either born, or raised there. Amongst them is Francis, a conscientious factory worker who continues to repair the machine that he has worked on all his life; Samir, his son, who returns after a long absence; Maria, the neighbor, and her son José, who is convinced his father is Gary Cooper and waits for him on the street every day.
