In the mountains of Argentina, in the freezing cold of winter, Lila tries to escape from a boarding school on horseback. At 12 years old, she has just hit puberty, and she's determined to track down the father she's never known. Her teacher stops her, concerned for her well-being, but Lila's force of will eventually wins her over. Against the wishes of the school principal, the teacher drives Lila to the place where her father used to work, setting in motion a twisting, turning journey through buried memories and interconnected lives.

In his debut feature, director Matías Lucchesi brings sensitivity and insight to his exploration of the psychological ramifications of family connections, framing the brittle emotions of his characters against sweeping vistas of the harsh Sierras de Córdoba mountain range.
