One day he picks up a boy called Elder (Luis Silva), the leader of a small gang involved in a violent feud with the brothers of Elder’s girlfriend. Elder goes back to Armando’s flat, lured by the fat wad of cash, suspicious and mutinous, and the encounter ends in violence. However, Armando goes after Elder and they form a complex bond. Their love affair develops and deepens as Armando is introduced to Elder's family. All seems to be well until Elder invites among those to a coastal location and makes him a chilling proposal. How will their relationship evolve?
