After a whole life of work in Tijuana, Rafael and Lidia are victims of injustice against their rights and dignity. Although Rafael has been a diligent and reliable worker, as an illegal immigrant to Tijuana from El Salvador, he has no right to expect a retirement pension due to a paperwork mistake. Lidia is one of seven workers keeping house for a rich Mexican woman in a wheelchair who has dedicated her life to her dog. When Lidia finds out that her employer's will leaves the entire estate to the dog, she begins to think about what it means to have a dog as an employer. The film paints an affecting picture of the division of labor in today’s seemingly egalitarian society.
