    • Santiago, 2006. Martín, an apathetic high school student, join to the school takeover motivated by approaching Laura, the idealist president of the student center. During the takeover, Martín will question his prejudices towards his fellow students and little by little he will be involved in their fight for the education. Together they must face the adversity of the confinement as their relationships break down, love blossoms between them and the indifference of society begins to disappear with the awakening of the penguin revolution.
