14-year-old Segundo lives with his parents in a village high in the magnificent mountains of Peru. His father Noé is a respected artist and Segundo’s role model. Noé hand-crafts altarpieces, decorated shrines for church and home, and is teaching Segundo the necessary skills to carry on in his footsteps. On his way to a community celebration in the Andes, Segundo accidentally observes his father in a situation that shatters his whole world. Noé's secret reveals the facade of a seemingly intact village community where homophobic attitudes enforced by patriarchal laws are carried out with remorseless violence. Trapped in a chauvinistic environment, Segundo will try to deal in silence with all that is happening to him.
