The apparent peace of the residents in the zone, an enclosed and high security residential neighborhood, becomes severely disrupted by the intrusion of three criminals. Two of them are caught, but the third one remains a fugitive inside the zone. Distrustful of the abounding corruption and ineptness of the authorities the neighbors refuse to notify the police. Instead, they decide to take justice into their own hands and hunt down the thief themselves. Alejandro, a young man who has lived inside the zone all his life, discovers the intruder, Miguel, who is a guy his same age. While the police investigate, paranoia and violence escalate inside the zone. The relationship between Alejandro and Miguel will change the course of events
