An entire family lives their routine inside an ambulance as they drive along the streets of Mexico City throughout the night. A film that is both observant to the unique dynamics of the relationship between the different family members and the extreme situations in which they find themselves as well as an acute metaphor for the precarious labor relations in a contemporary world in which the boundaries between public and private interests increasingly disappears.
