Tomoko is an older woman who, after her retirement, is sent to Argentina to spread Japanese culture. The first days of his exchange, which will last a year, he tries to take refuge in the bubble of his community, maintaining his tradition and rituals, but the local panorama presents difficulties: few people speak his language and even fewer share his customs.

It is up to her to open up to find another interpretation of her stay to discover the western charm.
