During a family dinner in honor of his birthday, patriarch Rodrigo Carnicero (Xavier Masse) drops dead of a heart attack. Among the witnesses are his devoted daughter Pureza (Pilar Ixquic Mata) and his beloved grandchildren Rocco (Osvaldo Benavides) and Rodrigo (Rodrigo Cachero). Rocco and Rodrigo are cousins, though completely different; while Rocco is laid-back and hippie-ish, Rodrigo is dour and conservative. One thing Rocco and Rodrigo have in common, however, is their loyalty to their departed grandfather, with whom they enjoyed a closer relationship than with either of their self-absorbed fathers. After Don Rodrigo's death, Rocco and Rodrigo take off in the vintage car left to Rodrigo by his grandfather to dispose of the don's ashes in the manner requested in his will. When they arrive at the beach where their grandfather is to be scattered, Rocco and Rodrigo lodge at a hotel run by Perla (Gina Morett) and her daughter Maria (Ana de la Reguera). Chaos soon results when the urn is lost, Rocco hooks up with Maria for his initiation into sex, and the cousins discover that Perla once enjoyed intimate relations with their beloved grandfather.
