Raul.

About to turn 30 years working in the barber shop he inherited from his parents, Raúl starts to change his daily routine, in order to have something new to tell to his customers.
He tries to get closer to his neighbors, visits a bar near his home, and spends some time in the neighborhood square, where he meets a lady with whom he establishes a strange relationship.
Eventually, he realizes that he is much closer to the solution of his problems than he could have imagined.
