After her father’s death, Juana travels with her mother and siblings to her father’s hometown to bury him. Juana and her brothers have inherited one of the family’s lands, “La Cigarrera”, and her uncle wants to buy it for his son, who after being unemployed for several years has decided to recover the family tradition and become a farmer. But Juana does not want to sell the land. Instead, he decides to stay in the town to achieve his father’s unfulfilled dream: to build his own house, after his brother Mateo kicked him out of the family home in the past. But one question resonates strongly in his mind: Why did his father want to build a house in that lost and ugly place in the world?
