In the middle of nowhere, a working-class housing estate that was emptied of its residents some years ago.
Yet, some of its residents decided to stay, by choice rather than necessity, as they grew up there.
Among them is Francis, a conscientious worker who continues to tend the machine he worked on all his life. There is also Samir, his son, who returns to the district after a long absence. And the neighbour Maria, living alone with her son José who wants to believe his father is Gary Cooper.
Each day, he awaits his father’s return in this modern-day wasteland, which looks astonishingly like a Western film set.
