Lorenzo lives in a small town in the Patagonia region of Argentina with his parents and brother. He is an intelligent, shy, and curious teenager interested more in academics than sports. His simple life is challenged when a family friend from Buenos Aires, Caito, comes to live with his family. Caito, a year older than Lorenzo, could not be more opposite: covered in tattoos, handsome and dealing with life by drinking too much while working construction instead of worrying about school.

It’s Lorenzo’s job to make sure Caito feels at home, while keeping an eye on him. As Caito begins to open up and the two grow close, conversations evolve into something deeper, as does Lorenzo’s feelings for his new friend. When Caito finally reveals the reason why he had to leave his family behind, Lorenzo takes on the responsibility of this secret, a decision that will change everything.
