The way

to solitude

Old Alonso works at the "La Soledad" terminal, a town abandoned many years ago where no bus arrives anymore. His only companion is his desperate wife Beatriz, who only awaits his death and his friend Naranjo, who for more than 50 years has been the owner of the only hotel, "La Soledad", where no guest arrives.

The three are the last settlers of a village in ruins that at some point lived  great times. Together they wait for one day life to return to the town or death to take them out of there.
