BROTHER AND SISTER

After living sixty years under the maternal shackles: protective and suffocating, Marcos, an educated and refined goldsmith, believes he has found freedom after the death of his mother. However,at 64 and dogged by unresolved family problems he is forced to leave Buenos Aires and live in exile in a small Uruguayan beach resort. The search for pleasure clashes against the reality from which he cannot escape. He is unable to bear the vacuum left by the absence. His sister, ten years the younger and with an overbearing and delusional personality, becomes the only crutch he finds to help him carry on.They are both alone. They need each other but at the same time they hate one another. The relationship between both of them has swings like a pendulum. Day after day they settle pending accounts and facts from badly kept memories.
