As a demolition crew prepares to raze the building that Beto Luna has worked in for forty years, the dedicated worker finds his fate becoming curiously intertwined with that of the desperate foreman whose job it is to ensure that the job gets carried out correctly. Beto is a man who has spent his entire career in a single building, and Osvaldo Lazzari is a demolition foreman whose gruff demeanor masks a deep-rooted emotional fragility. Osvaldo is paid under the table and has no insurance, and he knows that it's only a matter of time before his luck runs out. When Beto and Osvaldo cross paths, both men realize that their very lives may crumble right along with the building in question. Brought together by their mutual fears and dissatisfaction in life, these two lost souls attempt to find their way in life as the public gathers to protest the demolition.
