What could be worse than being 14 and on vacation with your father, stuck indoors during a seemingly endless rainstorm? Since his divorce, Alberto spends little time with his children, Lucía and Federico. On a stormy morning, the three of them set off for a hot springs resort. It's going to be a short vacation, so Alberto wants to make the most of it, and refuses to allow anything to ruin his plans. But the springs are closed until further notice due to the heavy rain, and Lucía's adolescent rebellion clashes against her father's enthusiastic efforts for family quality time. Cooped up in a small cabin, and being forced to spend time together, the three of them will eventually manage to find common ground despite the emotional and meteorological impediments.
