In an attempt to escape from a home where sorrow reigns, Juan, a 16-year-old boy, crashes his family´s car. As he scours the city trying to fix the car, he meets Don Heber, an old mechanic whose only companion is Sica, his boxer dog; Lucía a clueless young mother who wants to go to a rock concert; and David, a mechanic obsessed with martial arts. The absurd and bewildering worlds of these characters drag Juan into a one-day journey in which he will come to accept an event as natural and inexplicable as death.

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.
