Felix (11) plays football all day. One Sunday, his mother calls the boy’s older sister, Gemma, to look for their father together. Felix thinks his father got a job on Mars. Félix’s mother and sister wander the streets of Santos Lugares, an impoverished and strange neighbourhood, while Félix imagines the various possible jobs his father will do on the distant planet.
