Sergio is on a secret spy-mission: to infiltrate a retirement home and check how the residents are treated by the staff. At 83, he learns to operate a digital camera hidden in the frame of his glasses, and a voice recorder concealed inside a pen. He is not much of a spy, but he makes up for it with dedication. As he pries, peeks, sneaks, and eavesdrops, the plot thickens.
In his desperate attempts to collect findings for his “operator”, Sergio finds himself in an altogether different kind of affair—the romantic kind. Enamored female residents cannot resist his charm, and the air of the retirement home crackles with romantic tension. Director Maite Alberdi (La Once, The Grown Ups) delivers a tender and carefully crafted study of loneliness, compassion, attraction, and hope.
