Introverted Juan (Sergio Hernandez), manager of a mannequin factory, lives alone with his eighteen-year-old gay son, Pablo (Andrew Bargsted). Whilst Pablo blithely studies dance, Juan is hoping that, after twenty-five years at the firm, his boss will consider him for a partnership. When Pablo is badly wounded in a brutal homophobic attack, which sees him hospitalized, his father realizes just how far they have become estranged.
A lack of witnesses and expensive medical bills force Juan to leave the quiet stability of his life for good and reposition himself in a world where there is discrimination. Time and again his efforts come to nothing, until one night on the streets of Santiago he makes up his own rules in order to save his son.
