Synopsis

What could be worse than being 14 and on vacation with your father?
Taking your children on vacation during seemingly endless rain.

Since his divorce, Alberto spends little time with his children Lucía and Federico. The three of them set off for the hot springs one stormy morning: it‘s going to be a short vacation so they want to make the most of it. Always enthusiastic, Alberto does not want anything to ruin his plans. But the springs are closed until further notice and his children look at him with reproachful eyes causing him to fly off the handle. Soon enough, as the weather outside gets stickier, everyone becomes increasingly oversensitive. Meanwhile, the rain keeps falling and the house Alberto rented seems to be getting smaller by the hour.
