    • Darío es estudiante en el Instituto
      Nacional. Miguel Ángel es un profesor de
      tenis exitoso. Durante la movilización
      social que estalla el año 2011 en Chile,
      ambos deciden correr junto a miles de
      personas alrededor del Palacio de
      Gobierno La Moneda, demandando
      educación gratuita y de calidad. La
      experiencia los llevará a replantear sus
      vidas y enfrentar los fantasmas y
      temores del pasado, en medio de un país
      convulsionado y en busca de identidad.
