Héctor Medellín, a famous television host of a program aimed at housewives, is going through a midlife crisis. He’s realized that he is unhappy with his family, his work and his lifestyle; so, when the opportunity arises, he pretends to be dead and begins to enjoy an invigorating new freedom sheltered in a hidden beach where nobody knows him, working as a cook in a small restaurant. Everything goes well, until years later his daughter, whom he abandoned years prior, decides to vacation right at the beach where he is hiding. This reunion, as well as the people around him in his new life, will help him understand that he must stop running away from himself, take responsibility for his actions, and face his demons.
