At fifty, alcoholic and unemployed, Raul’s balance board is his passion for Ligia, who in recent years has been a partner on a life without rules. After being abandoned by her, he starts to drink vigorously, contracts tuberculosis and, in between health centers and temporary jobs, builds a sweet relationship with Cassia, a nineteen-year-old girl he meets in a bar. This is the first time she really gets attached to someone. However, Raul, still weakened by Ligia's disappearance and illness, resists transforming this friendship into a love relationship. With body and mind quite eroded by the disease, he comes across Ines, a mysterious woman who came up to his room for one last conversation.
