Pedro is an attractive and homosexual dentist who lives a sexually active lifestyle. He offers to take care of his 9 year-old nephew Bernardo for two weeks while the child's mother, Pedro's older sister Violeta, goes off to India with her latest "hippie" boyfriend. Pedro modifies his sexual behavior but quickly finds out that Bernardo is extremely comfortable and mature in his attitude towards life. When Violeta suddenly becomes detained in India, Pedro finds himself the boy's caretaker and must face the challenges of raising a child. As the relationship between uncle and nephew gradually becomes tighter through real love, friendship and affection, Violeta's estranged mother, Doòa Teresa, arrives to begin a relationship with her grandson, Bernardo. But as she finds out more about Pedro's life, Doòa Teresa believes that the upbringing of a child should not be left in the hands of a homosexual.
