    • Synopsis
    • Zion, a rich teenage runaway, is looking for a place to belong. A rendezvous with the half-brother he has never met fails. When he sees a group of four boys cross the street, he drops everything and follows them, especially Uno, whose casual appeal stirs hidden feelings within Zion. It turns out the boys moonlight as hustlers, and when the youngest, Miguelito, disappears with a client and dies of an overdose, Zion becomes entangled into their troubles. He is cajoled into a mission to fulfill the dead boy’s final wish: to go home.

      Over the course of one night, Zion and the rest take the dead body from the city to the countryside, to relatives and a former girlfriend, via buses and highways. With each step, the conclusion becomes clearer: that there is no place in the world for these kids, except with each other.

      When they arrive at Miguelito’s hometown, the boys are struck by his family’s apathy and rejection. They throw Miguelito’s body into a bonfire amidst the town’s noisy festivities, claiming him as their own. When morning arrives, despite their differences, they have become forged into a singular pack of brothers.
