Synopsis

After spending their whole lives working in Tijuana, Rafael and Lidia become victims of gross injustices. Rafael learns that due to a paperwork mistake, he will not be entitled to his retirement pension. As for Lidia, she finds out that her employer's will leaves all the heirlooms to the dog. In their own way, alone and in silence, they begin a battle: Rafael against a company, Lidia against a dog. Curiously, these struggles are invisible.
