Leopoldo, an old man from Madrid, has been going to the same bar every day for 12 years, his last connection to his old life. But the bar closes, and the loneliness he was trying to avoid suddenly invades his life again with the arrival of Mauricio, an anthropomorphic pigeon who won’t shut up until Leopoldo accepts his fate. Death? Well, something more complicated.
