Synopsis / Plot
Ariel Perelman is a lawyer like his dad. But there is one huge difference between them. While his father represents a colourful array of criminals, Ariel has more to do with ghosts… In other words, he works for a legal department which represents its clients in their absence, so his life is rather dull.

Then things start to change for the better. Ariel marries a beautiful woman who had previously seemed unattainable. He has a child with her and his self-confidence starts to grow. In the middle of all these changes, his father comes to him with an urgent matter. Ariel has to make a decisión which will alter his life completely.

Will he finally be able to stand on his own two feet, or will he remain forever in his old father’s shadow?
