Bruno is a young immigrant returning to Chile from Germany after a long absence. Bruno is staying in the house of his cousins in the country, where the whole family are gathered to bid the place a farewell, as it is about to be sold. They visit a place that he remembers fondly, the "Magnetic Tree" a local curiosity. The tree has a mysterious magnetic force, so powerful that it can pull cars toward itself.

The group, in a series of free and open conversations, reveal the feelings that come from a family relationship.
