    • Synopsis
    • While working on the construction of Uruguay's largest prison, Miguel leads a double life. With a certain regularity, he crosses the border with Brazil to go to see “another” family. In the two countries, he is a tireless worker and takes great care of his loved ones. But, as the prison walls get higher, his almost incessant physical activity does not anymore mitigate the torment that inhabits him. Increasingly haunted by guilt, Miguel realizes that he has become a prisoner of his own lies. He plans to finally tell the people he loves the truth... and struggles to find the courage to do it.
