  • EXTENDED SYNOPSIS

Mikel, un joven de 35 años, harto de vivir en Euskadi, en paro y recién abandonado por su novia, acepta la invitación de un tío segundo, al que solo conoce por internet, para cambiar de aires y marcharse a un pueblo perdido de Argentina.
Lo que Mikel no podía imaginar es que ha llegado a una pequeña Euskadi habitada por argentinos que nunca han pisado la tierra de sus antepasados y que la vida del pueblo gira alrededor de la Euskal Etxea. Por si fuera poco, Mikel se dará cuenta de que su tío es un soñador y su tía abuela despierta de su estado vegetativo y le confunde con su propio hermano, el abuelo de Mikel. A partir de ese momento, Mikel vive atrapado en una Euskadi ficticia en mitad de Argentina.

Mikel has decided that his life needs a drastic change and so he accepts the invitation from a distant relative to travel to Argentina and restart his life there. But it won´t be long after his arrival before Mikel realizes that his “uncle” Chelo is no more than a happy-go-lucky gambling addict and alcoholic, with absolutely nothing to offer him.
As if this wasn´t bad enough, things start to go even further downhill when grandma Dolores, Chelo´s mom, wakes from a ten-year sleep after hearing Mikel sing a lullaby in the Basque language and confuses him with Juanito, her brother and Mikel´s grandfather. From this moment on, the whole village will embark on a madcap plan to convince Dolores that she´s still in her home town in the Basque country of the 1950´s.
Mikel now suddenly finds himself in the middle of Chelo and Begoña, Dolores´ two, squabbling children, with whom he will have to try and broker the peace, aided only by the helpful and understanding Ines, Amuma Dolores´ ever-cheerful carer. (Filmax - International Sales)
