In Buenos Aires, the bitter and methodic Roberto is a lonely man and the owner of a hardware store. One day, Roberto sees a Chinese man named Jun being expelled from a taxi while he is watching the landing of airplanes in the airport, and he helps the man to stand up. Jun does not speak Spanish but shows Roberto a tattoo with an address on his arm. They go to this address and discover that the place belonged to Jun’s uncle that sold it three and half years ago. Roberto lodges Jun in his house and after a series of incidents, he finds a delivery boy to translate for Jun, and learns the dramatic story of his life.
