It’s never too late to start having the life you’ve always dreamed of. This is the story of two couples who, in the 60s, encouraged to hit the wheel, sold everything they had in Buenos Aires and created a dream inn in San Juan, opposite the very Andes mountain range.

In an outburst, he called his brother-in-law, Aurelio Martín, and proposed to join his plan. Alejandro and Aurelius are married to two sisters, Cristina and Claudia. Together, and almost without thinking, the four embarked on this new adventure, at an age when most people are already hanging their gloves.
