Hector, a boy of 16, has lost his mother. His aunt Tere is going to look after him. He has to go from living in a house with a garden in the center of the city to a small apartment on the outskirts of Madrid. H6ctor is trying to understand the new reality taking shape before his eyes. A way of life that is very different from the one he knew but that is becoming more familiar each day. Everything changes when Martin, Hector's father, arrives. He has traveled from the other side of the ocean to meet his son. The boy knew that his father existed although he never wanted to meet him. Martin pursues him in order to explain the reason for his long absence and, in that way, win his son's heart and also offer him a new life in Mexico. Hector will have to decide between his newly discovered family and the adventure beyond the sea. Influenced perhaps by his character or his feelings, Hector decides.
