    • Ana, a housewife who lives in a small town in the Patagonia, she receives a call that breaks her routine existence. Her husband is in prison. He asks her to cross to Chile to find money for a bribe.
      Upon arriving to Chile she meets her contact, a hardened woman named María, mother of a young child. Together, they will carry out a one-day raid looking for money in brothels.
      After the money was collected, María places it on Ana's body, hidden under her clothes. When she arrives at the border crossing, Ana realizes that María and her son are Guillermo's secret second family.
      She gets furious and forces María to cross to Argentina with her. On the way, María reveals that Guillermo takes part in a human trafficking network.
