    • Synopsis
    • Jairo (18) is a native young man from Venezuela who was born with no nipples. Affected by his anomaly, Jairo goes to Omar, the plastic surgeon of the clinic where he works, who agrees to implant him new nipples. Looking for some money, he visits his mother in the indigenous community where he is from. There, he still perceives the rejection of those who do not see him as the native male prototype.
