The Hamsters

Rodolfo and Beatriz are the parents of two young adults, Jessica and Juan. Together, they form a family which lacks communication badly. Every day, Rodolfo pretends to leave for work but he is actually unemployed; Beatriz is right in the middle of a middle-age crisis and is seduced at her gym; Jessica is caught in a love triangle with her boyfriend and her best friend; and though Juan is very young, he is informed that he will have a baby. This is a regular family in which everyone hides secrets in spite of living under the same roof.
