A Venezuelan single father struggling to make ends meet and his 12-year-old son, Pedro, go into hiding in Caracas after Pedro finds himself in over his head in a gang fight and stabs another boy. The pair suddenly spend all their time together and must learn to act like a family in order to survive their current situation in a city plagued by a grim economic crisis.

"Often quick on its feet and energetic rather than melodramatic or inward-looking, this is a promising debut...." Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter

"Córdova's film brings little that's new to its stylistic school of observational realism - but hits the Caracas sidewalks hard and purposefully enough to compensate." Guy Lodge. Variety
