Juan Pablo, 16, travels to the remote family country house in the Andes, where his uncle, who is involved in a corruption scandal, has taken refuge with his wife and teenage children. It is the carnival holiday of 1999, days before the collapse of Ecuador’s banking system. There, Juan Pablo meets Juano, an enigmatic, self-assured black-metal fan from the nearby town, who opens his eyes to a new, liberating universe. As his cousins and family are heading to the abyss, the two boys’ budding friendship develops into a fragile romance and Juan Pablo is forced to define himself against his chaotic surroundings.
