Shot over three years in southwest Mexico, the film follows Diego as he reunites with his brothers Rodrigo and Bruno to care for their 93-year-old grandmother América. Their father, who had been her caretaker, was jailed under accusation of elder neglect after América fell from her bed. While they work to free him, the young brothers must learn to provide daily care for their grandmother. But as the brothers clash over money and the distribution of labor, difficult questions take the foreground – who decides what becomes of América? And how long will they put their lives on hold to care for her?
