Raimundo, a senile old man living alone in an over-crowded Havana apartment block, is only too happy to look after his young neighbor's baby for the afternoon. But, when another friend comes for a visit, he begins to realize that Raimundo might not be all there. The old man is reluctant to accept the reality of the baby that was left with him.
