A family, 100,000 chickens with a death sentence, a secret that will unveil all family secrets, and a star 2,500 million light years away that will make them understand that we all are metaphorically ExtraTerrestrials.
The Díaz are an influential and well-to-do family who control much of the poultry industry in the island. Arcadio is the family patriarch, an authoritative and conservative man who rules over his family’s destiny as he does over the chickens on his farm. Teresa, his eldest, left home during her college years to become an astrophysicist against her father’s wishes. Now, after a 7-year absence, she returns home for a few weeks in order to reveal a secret long kept from her family and to invite them to her wedding with Daniela in the Canary Islands. But, once back, her intentions turn to dust when she finds herself trapped in the family’s old habit of lying. No one in the family is as they seem, nor are they willing to unveil their true selves. Within this world of half-truths, Terese encounters Andrés, her nephew, a boy with Asperger’s Syndrome who shares her passion for the stars. Through his view of the universe, Teresa experiences a sublime revelation: That our worries are infinite.
