A father, two sons and a meal. The story takes place during a family get-together where Tomás (Imanol Arias) invites over his two sons, Jesús (Miquel Fernández) and Antonio (Aitor Luna) to announce an important news. The patriarch, accompanied by his biographer, Lina (Ana Fernández), takes his time to tell them what he really desires until his children begin to lose their patience. At one point, one of the sons discovers the presence of a huge flag in the garden, sparking a dispute that seriously jeopardizes the apparent family harmony. The film attempts to portray today's society, where opinions seem to have no nuances and totally opposing positions with no middle ground.
