Txomin, an unemployed Basque archaeologist, is commissioned to carry out an expert report on Mars. With his brother Gene driving, they set off from Eibar on an adventure through northern Spain. Gene’s failing health and a mysteriously appearing toxic haze cause them to veer off their path. They decide to go to their sister Mila. The reunion of the three siblings brings up old family issues while Gene’s health gets severe. With the help of some ghosts and Jesus Christ himself, the two brothers decide to finish their mission and reach Mars.
