Jorge has played basketball professionally until he was thirty-five years old, when he retired. Now he is thirty-seven and does not know what to do with the rest of his life. Every day he gets up late, plays video games, stuffs himself with junk food and then goes for a walk until the night comes. He barely has any relationship with other people, he lives in a bubble that he will try to break when he realizes that maybe he has gone too far on his isolation.
