Synopsis

The Argentinian crisis of 2021 marks Felipe’s generation, who at only 13 years of age doesn’t quite grasp what is happening within his surroundings. Secluded, Felipe falls in love with his 13-year-old neighbour Lucía. When the crisis erupts and violence becomes a real danger, they run away together. In their hiding place, Felipe comes face to face with the consequences of his wish of being a grown-up and is obliged to face his fears and guilt of maturity.
