Additional Information

Martín lives in Quilicura, a district of Santiago, drifting from day to day. His domestic environment is becoming more and more difficult; the family has to move again to an even smaller flat due to a lack of money. No one is interested in Martín’s dream of a career as a rap musician and he gets on rather badly at school. Charly works in a fast food restaurant. His meagre income is not even enough to pay maintenance for his little son, who lives with his mother. The friends are connected by a strong feeling of togetherness and escape their dismal everyday lives through music and drugs. Sol is on a frantic search for her runaway dog and she would also love to escape from her life. Stress with her overprotective mother and the secret love for a woman make her daily routine complicated and chaotic. When she once again roams the streets looking for her four-legged friend, she meets Martín and Charly, who have just found a loaded revolver in the mountains. What seems to be a chance meeting for a long time suddenly unfolds its own dynamics.
