Four teenagers face the tragedy and absurdity of being young in Mexico City: Martin catches hell for publicly declaring his love; Daniel wants to be treated like an adult, which gets him into trouble with the law; Dulce is a bully who longs to be loved; and Pedro is a kid who suddenly stops speaking like a normal person. They all share one irritating obstacle: grown-ups.
In the abandoned town of La Estancia, bound by time and space, an unusual relationship develops between its last inhabitants and the filmmaker documenting their lives. Years later, the filmmaker returns to complete his unfinished work and find his characters once again, but soon realizes that things have changed and can never be the same. The only thing left in La Estancia are the echoes of its voices.
A quiet glimpse at love, blood and other things that keep you awake at night.
Happiness is a long journey that begins on a rare and special day.
