    • Since Roberto’s wife died, he has left his 15-year-old daughter Alejandra unattended. Deep into depression, he decides to move into Mexico City. In the new school, the child will hold in silence emotional and sexual abuses, along with all kind of humiliation, as long as she never brings trouble to home. The situation comes to a limit during a school trip to the Beach, when Alejandra escapes swimming away from her torturers. Roberto thinks that those bullies killed his daughter and prepares revenge. When Alejandra shows up, it is too late.
