After a seven-year marriage, Ruy and Julia have lost that spark, intimately, triggering marriage issues, they no longer understand each other in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, or in any other corner of their home. As parents they are still a great team, much better than most “happily together”, so they decide to stay a family, but establish a couple rules: each of them can be with whoever they want (as long as they tell the other) and they will never get Andrea a new mom/dad.
At first, all is going well, we pace through their daily routines, Ruy and Julia have readjusted the dynamics of the traditional genre to what works well; Ruy takes care of the housework and doing things like taking Andrea to the dentist, while Julia focuses on her tasks.
One night they both decide to go out as a couple to a strange shamanic wedding with some of their friends. Even though Ruy had agreed to be the authorized driver, Ruy gets very drunk and Julia has to drive back to the house. Along the way, the cruel fortune (or Waze) mandates right to a breathalyzer where Julia is arrested for driving under the influence (she had only had a couple of beers but it’s enough to be two hundredths above the limit). Ruy promises to get her out of the Torito, but quickly falls into a deep slumber forcing Julia to spend half of the night in prison until a group of female fighters, whom she meets at the station, help to process an amparo and set them all free.
