Synopsis

Lorenzo, a quiet teenager lives in a small town at the edge of the world in beautiful Patagonia. He's a good student and a curious and smart person, more skilled in music and literature than sports. Lorenzo's father decides to host Caito, the son of a friend from Buenos Aires who had to go to hospital for a long stay. Caito has obviously a different family background and seems to be a tough kid. Lorenzo finds Caito very intriguing in many ways as they start spending a lot of time together… While their friendship is evolving towards perhaps deeper feelings, Caito reveals a secret…what will be the outcome?
