Anders Hill is a 50-year-old man who has decided to abandon all the predictions of his life. He retired from the financial workplace early and now seems to think of his past. Hill is divorced by Helene’s wife and spends most of the day trying to find various store items to put on the shelves of his new bachelor house.
Meanwhile, Helene moved with her new boyfriend and lives in his house with his 20-year-old son, Preston, who has just returned from a rehabilitation center and is trying to find a living alive. Andres learns a tragically true thing, something he explains to his friend Larry; we can all be easily replaced. His home now has a new patriarchal figure and the world of finance continues to advance. Andres’s journey to discover the meaning of life reveals that … goes further without him.
For Andres this is a great revelation, and it does not do well at all. He is simply in the position of not finding a particular identity or purpose in this life. Having no family or work or a normal relationship with his son, he can not do anything else, he just barely motivates himself to get out of bed. As a result, he exaggerates to compensate in strange ways, such as decorations designed for Christmas.
