    • Synopsis
    • PEDRO (11), TOMAS (12) and MATIAS (12) live in a lower class suburban area in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. They spent their childhood playing football, skipping classes, and cheating on their homework.
      Their recurring dream is the big city which lies behind the trees, at the end of the railway they cross in their way to school. Everything behind that railway seems to be big and fascinating. The idea of taking a train to explore the big city illuminates with dreams they daily life in the neighborhood.
      One day they go too far. Tomás decides to steal the gun of Pedro's father and from then on, the three kids will get deeper and deeper in troubles. The increase of tension and the impossibility of the three kids to get out of the situation leads them to an unfortunate result: Tomás accidentally gets shot when trying to escape from the director of the school.
      In order to cope with sorrow and resentment Pedro and Matías flee from home to take a train and find what lies behind the railway, in the big city. Analia (11), Tomás' sister, will join them. They wander around with no direction trying to find all the fascinating adventures that they can't no longer wait to happen to them.
