The truth is it's been four years

since we heard from her...

She sold the house to my godmother,

may she rest in peace.

And then we came to live here

with my husband and our children.

We came to live here.

The only thing I know is...

that she was with a man from Chaco,

she got together with him

and then she disappeared from town...

She came back later to sell the house


they left together:

But she didn't leave a phone number,

address, nothing...

You came to visit her?


That's too bad, darling, she didn't

leave a number... nothing.

- Good morning.

- Good morning, how are you?

Eh... I'm looking for a job,

for a short time... for the summer'...

cleaning the pool, mowing the lawn...

The thing is that this is not my house,

I'm watching it for my aunt and uncle

and I think they take care of those things.

For me, only a few pesos a day would be fine,

it would be only for the summer


I have a job promised in Buenos Aires...

but... painting...

Come back tomorrow, let me discuss it

with my aunt and uncle,

maybe there is something to do, okay?

- Yes, great. Thanks.

- No, don't mention it.

You are Eugenio, right?


Because... I used to swim in that pool

when I was little...

I'm 'The Russian', Esther's son...

The one who had a convenience store

next to the empty field, next to an

abandoned bus...

Martin? How are you?

Your face looked familial'...

- I'll come back tomorrow.

- Do you want to come in?

No, no... It's fine.

Eh, do I come back tomorrow?

Okay, come back tomorrow

- Okay, good. Thank you so much.

- You're welcome.

See you tomorrow.

Martin, come here,

I bought something to eat.

Where are you staying?

At my aunt's place.

She lives next to the hospital.

What about your mother?

No... my mom passed away

when I was thirteen.

That was when...

I went to live with

my grandmother in Uruguay.

To Montevideo?

To Cardozo. Have you been there?

I went to Montevideo, not Cardozo.

What is it? A town?

Yes. A town

just in the middle of Uruguay.

And you never came back?

No. Well, yes. I went back to Buenos Aires

a couple of times with my grandmother:

And here, only once when I was eighteen,

also with my grandmother:

So, do you have cousins?

Eh, no...

Yes, but they all live in Buenos Aires


And where you will be staying

in Buenos Aires?

No, no... I don't know yet.

Excuse me, can I take a bath

in the shower in the storage room?

No, there's not hot water there but you

can bathe on the bathroom in the house.

- No, that's okay, no problem.

- Come on, I'll give you a towel.

- No, it's okay.

- Come on.

Martin, I have some clothes here,

I don't know if you want to look at them.

They belonged to my dad,

maybe something will fit you.

Just saying, so you don't have to work

in your own clothes... I don't know...

Try them on...


You're welcome. Keep anything you want.

- Eugenio...

- Yeah?

Thank you.

Yes, no problem.

Okay, I'll be going now.

You look like another person.

Hey... come and sit down for a second.


Eat some cookies,

you have been working the whole day.


I spoke with my uncle, and I convinced him

to do a couple repairs to the house, that are needed.

So there will be work for the whole summer.

You are staying until the last week

of February, right? - Yeah.

And when exactly do you start in March?

The first week.


In... maintenance at a... school...

...a religious school.

Listen, whenever you want to take a bath,

fell free. Don't even ask me, okay?

I'm going by the hospital now, do you

want a ride?
