Humour becomes the best counterpoint to emotion in this poignant melodrama about friendship, life and death starring Ricardo Darín and Javier Cámara.

Julián is a cancer-stricken actor who has little time left, so he decides to get his affairs in order before definitively leaving this realm. He is in the midst of doing this when he receives an unexpected visit from Tomás, his best friend from Canada. The two share four intense days together during which they will experience surprising, comical and emotional situations while trying to solve Julián's major worry: finding a new home for his dog Truman.
