In Buenos Aires, the bitter and methodic Roberto is a lonely man and the owner of a hardware store. One day, Roberto sees a Chinese named Jun being expelled from a taxi. Jun does not speak Spanish and shows a tattoo with an address on his arm.. Roberto goes with Jun to the police station, to the China's embassy and to a Chinese neighborhood to seek out his uncle but it is a fruitless search.
