Plot Summary
At age 42, Rafael Belvedere is having a crisis. He's overwhelmed by his responsibilities and just isn't having any fun. Just when Rafael feels the most alone and unable to reach out to anyone, a series of unexpected events lead him to reevaluate his life. A minor heart attack forces him to slow down, and a reunion with Juan Carlos, a childhood friend who tries to keep a positive attitude in the wake of a personal tragedy in his own life, helps Rafael to change his life.
