Film director Salvador Mallo is in terrible pain with his back so he pops pills to get through the day, a shadow of his former self. A screening and Q&A of one of Salvador's most famous films prompts him to rebuild bridges to the picture's star, Alberto Crespo. The men argued 30 years ago and haven't spoken since. An awkward reunion, eased by a hit of heroin, sparks memories of Salvador's childhood in Paterna with his mother Jacinta.
