The film follows the life of a Paraguayan Guarani-speaking community that settled in the city of Cuenca, Spain. A suspended period of time between working hours. People name the things they are willing to do when they return to their country. Desires, dreams and future projects; every day they say them out loud, as if it were a spell. A record of this future is slowly being made, night by night.
