Lucas, Emilio and Ruben are three adolescents bonded by their mutual friendship. Today they have a special mission: to find a bunch of missing keys in a pile of dry leaves. It may appear to be a simple task, but it will turn into a real odyssey when the situation confronts them to their own fears: leaving the past behind, coming clean about painful truths, dare to take challenges. Grow up. This afternoon might change the course of their lives. Maybe not.
