Original title: Rhino
German title: Rinoceronte
Most of the time, Damián fends for himself. The eleven-year-old hardly ever sees his father. Instead of going to school, he roams the city, smashes bottles in the amphitheatre, explores factory ruins, pets strange dogs and gets some food here and there. One morning, the police pick him up from his home and consign him to the
care of social worker Leandro. After some medical examinations, Leandro puts Damián into the home of foster mother Mecha. He explains to the boy that this is necessary because his father does not care sufficiently for him. Also that, if things go well, he will soon be placed in a new family. But Damián is reluctant to fit into foster home life. He desperately wants to go back home, to his father and to his animal figurines. His roommate Piru tells him about his tragic life story. With Piru’s help, Damián manges to escape and returns to his old home. However, he does not meet his father there and finds his animal figurines in the rubbish bin. He does not understand why his father does not love him, does not even inquire about him. He looks for answers and expects Leandro to provide them.
