Synopsis

This documentary is about the life of three older people (Mary, 73; Sergio, 67; and Juan Manuel, 77) that live very different realities.
 Mary lives in a home for elderly people on the coast of Ecuador. Sergio lives alone and works as a guard in the city. Juan Manuel works as a farmer in the mountains. These three humble people communicate their life experiences and ideas about aging.
