A young man from Barcelona (Marc) arrives to Venice and confronts his father (Paco) who has not seen since he was two years old. This sudden encounter with his forgotten son both shocks and pleases Paco. Marc, initially filled with long repressed resentments, discovers in Paco a warm and welcoming individual. The emotions seem to move towards a feeling of connection and understanding between son and father. But Paco’s semi-lies, his complex and opaque past, his unclear present, quickly transforms the encounter into a muddy pool of emotional uncertainties. Marc’s confusions increase when he meets Tito, Paco’s associate in the book store in Venice that Paco first claimed to own; and the flirtatious Carlotta, the daughter of Lucia, Paco’s current wife.
