    • Baldomero, a former boxer, remains in prison for several years because of an involuntary homicide. When released, he spies on his ex wife, who left him when he was locked up. He sees her with a child and convinces himself that he must be his son, but the fear of facing his past prevents him from approaching him. He tries to build a relationship with a techno-cumbia singer, but his confused emotional state stands between them. The desire to catch a glimpse of a new life leads him to make impulsive decisions that push him to face his conflicts.
