Six elderly friends gather to have tea religiously once a month since sixty years ago.

Six elderly friends gather to have tea religiously once a month since sixty years ago. In these meetings they find themselves and have fall outs, they reminisce about their common past and try to demonstrate their validity, ignoring for a minute the ailments that afflict them. Afternoons go by but it seems as though time stands still, but it's presence is felt because they slowly disappear.
