Pedro, a 70-year-old gay nurse is taking care of Daniela, his ailing transgender friend. In order to find her a vacant hospital bed, he decides to help an arrested and wounded criminal, Jean, to escape. While he is hiding Jean from the police, they find themselves in a power struggle that turns into affection. Their relationship does not only help Pedro to overcome his solitude, but also leads him to accept his true self. It is a tale of friendship, love, sex and age. Surrounded as he is by sickness, death and other disasters on a daily basis, Pedro is possessed of the kind of strength of character that means he is not easily fazed. Not even when he makes a surprising discovery about Jean.
