Argentina 1983. A woman is devoting herself to the care of her sick father, a retired soldier. Her daily routine is set by the ticking of a clock which accompanies all of her tasks, leading her to realize what a slavish life she lives. The clock orders her to make the tea, to prepare the medicine, to wash or feed this man who no longer leaves his bedroom. As days go by, the woman withdraws more and more into her own little world, refusing to face reality, the outside reality as well as the reality of her father‘s room.
