    • Synopsis
    • Franco wakes up in an uncertain place, without knowing how or why he got there. Overwhelmed and surprised by the situation he slowly puts himself together. His restless mind begins to send him small pieces of what happened. However, he still doesn’t know he will have to overcome something even worse: the confrontation with his own fears, personal ghosts and faults, and the attempt to rebuild a conflictive relationship with his only son. Luciano is a teenager, with a weird attitude who shares his father’s confinement: a lonely delta island in Buenos Aires. Under uncertain circumstances, he becomes the mediator between Franco and his kidnappers, being in charge of his father help and assistance. Sometimes the young boy has an ambiguous and troubling behavior, which perturbs Franco’s tumultuous mind.
      Elena, an elegant and distinguished woman, has the unconceivable task of dealing with an uncertain rescue.
      Freedom is close but unexpected events will change the course of things and lead to an unpredictable end.
