From his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to Valencia, his first adult love in the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love, writing as the only therapy, the discovery of cinema, and the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films.

These two houses are brought together and the Kim’s sense a golden opportunity. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.
