Andres and his 12 year old son Pedro live in a blue-collar, violent neighborhood in the outskirts of Caracas but hardly see each other. When Andres comes home to find Pedro has gotten himself in trouble after seriously injuring a boy during a fight, the two are forced to flee. Andrés realizes he is incapable of controlling his own teenage son, but their situation will bring them closer than they have ever been.
