Sometimes we're so asleep we don't know what we're up to, Marco's mother says, explaining why she must rush to Santiago to see a friend who was hurt in a car accident. "Family is family," she says, "but for a friend you have a commitment, even on Good Friday," when her son's friends will be houseguests for Easter. Using improvised dialogue and hand-held camera work, the film captures the disintegration of the family's polite appearances at the hands of Marco's outspoken girlfriend. Adding to this potent mixture are Marco's friends - two university students facing exams, and a mysterious young woman with a vow of silence, guests for a weekend on the beach that will change all their lives.
