Juan is a shy and sloppy fifty-year-old man who works as a prison officer. Through the safety monitors, he silently observes every Sunday the visit of Berta, the mother of one of the inmates. Even though they have never spoken, he begins to feel an attraction to her. Berta spends most of her time enclosed at home, taking care of his sick husband, who has been bedridden for years.

The day he finally approaches her, he surprises himself by pretending to be the father of a made-up inmate daughter: Josefina.
