An empty house gives a woman a new lease on life but leaves her husband with a midlife crisis in this comedy from writer and director Daniel Burman. Leonardo (Oscar Martinez) is a successful playwright in his mid-fifties who has been married to Martha (Cecilia Roth) for most of his adult life. While Leonardo is still writing new work and in good health, he and Martha are both reacting in very different ways to the fact their youngest daughter, Julia (Inés Efron), is engaged to be married and soon to move out of the house. Martha returns to college to complete her studies and begins moving in a new social circle, while also looking for new ways to enliven her relationship with her husband, including psychotherapy and freely expressing her feelings. Leonardo, on the other hand, is too caught up in his anxieties about growing older to go along with Martha's new program; however, he does find himself newly interested in other women, but he goes a good deal further in his imagination than he can in real life.
