Description

When a Los Angeles massage therapist uses her grandmother's special Amazonian oil on her clients, five senior citizens find themselves recalling vivid memories of their ancestors. The seniors' live-in caregivers, each with a rich history, are inevitably caught up in the drama as the past collides with the present. Their collective lives are sent into upheaval as the self-appointed homeopathic Dr. Ruiz, a pathological liar, seeks to capitalize on their desires for memory retrieval and reenactments by fleecing them of their riches for a moment of unbridled remembrance and bliss. En el acaudalado vecindario de Los Feliz, en Los Angeles, varios ancianos adinerados experimentan vividos recuerdos de sus ancestros despues de que su masoterapeuta utiliza un aceite amazonico de aromaterapAa muy especial. Las encargadas de cuidar a los ancianos, cada una con una rica historAa personal, se ven inevitablemente atrapadas en el drama cuando el pasado choca con el presente. Las vidas de los protagonistas son lanzadas al caos, mientras la autodenominada homeopata Dra. Ruiz, mentirosa patologica, busca capitalizar el deseo de los ancianos por recuperar sus recuerdos y revivir sus experiencias pasadas exprimiendoles su dinero a cambio de un momento de recuerdos y dicha sin par.
