Flama and Moko have everything necessary to survive another boring Sunday: videogames, porn, soft drinks, pizza delivery, and no parents at home. But along comes their neighbor Rita, the pizza guy Ulises, the light company, the soccer game, chocolate brownies, and a horrible duck painting, all conspiring to interrupt their bliss, confronting them with the frustrations of adult life, divorce, loneliness, and romantic confusion.
