"This black-and-white study of human endurance, communication and compassion manages to be both austere and moving." Hollywood Reporter

Living in Barcelona, Stella is an Argentinian without any papers and suffers from ALS. As her life expectancy decreases quickly, her partner, Paco, whom she lives with and her daughter, Valeria, help Stella to manage her daily care. Valeria struggles with her mother's declining health and often finds solace in going out on the town and dancing the night away. While the three of them wait to hear about a subsidized housing request, they do their best to get by. Their daily interactions and routines are peppered with humour, love, and sorrow. Filmed in black and white, the film is a striking portrait of illness, ageing and family ties.
