Set in a middle-class suburb this is a tale of longing, reconnection, and disconnection. Billy, a former boy band quasi–pop star, is now a dutiful stay-at-home dad. He’s someone who’s out of touch, especially with himself. Mónica, a new neighbor, is a former devoted fan. She stops dead in her tracks the minute she recognizes her teen obsession living across the street. Monica’s adoration reminds Billy of what his life used to be as a performer, with fans feeding his ego. It also reminds him of his passion for music, and he begins to play his guitar again. This bittersweet trip down memory lane causes his dissatisfaction with life to come to an inflection point, and he begins to consider ways to break the ties that bind him to his everyday life.
