    • Synopsis
    • Seventeen-year-old Nicolas lives with his mother and younger siblings in a small provincial city.
      His estranged father, Jorge, a respected doctor, has decided that Nicolas will be his successor in both his medical practice and agricultural business. Nicolas is pressured by his father’s steps to prepare him for this responsibility, leaving no room for the teenager’s feelings. Nicolas obeys his father, but he hates him. He has seen his mother suffer because of Jorge’s double life. The first one with his official family, and the other one with Nicolas’ family, not acknowledged publicly.
      As tensions between father and son rise, Nicolas realizes that he must make a choice and take action toward his own future.
