Two adolescent siblings travel home to an out-of-season seaside town in Argentina to fulfil the last wishes of their late mother: scatter her remains in the ocean. Unfortunately, the only ‘remains’ they have is her prosthetic hand. Thus this quirky drama mines surrealist, deadpan comedy from death and the absurdity of life.

For 17-year-old Lucas, the nearly deserted town is fertile ground for exploring his sexuality. Meanwhile 20-year-old Gilda, preoccupied with her ‘bad energy’, searches for meaning through therapies and divination methods. Bickering and trapped in limbo, they confront the empty space left by their mother’s suicide and take important steps into adulthood, ultimately supporting each other through the challenging combination of mourning and adolescence.
