Arturo is a peaceful cab driver in Buenos Aires who has to obtain a thousand dollars within 24 hours.

His older son, Ramiro, who left home three years ago, has just phoned from Boston asking for urgent help.

The same day Leandro, his younger son who still lives with him, plans to steal him his savings, buy a drugs batch and run away to the coast to sell it at pubs.

When destiny bring them face to face, Arturo will transform himself again in that man who made Ramiro espace three years ago.
