After picking up his son from a Mexican orphanage, Miles and Carlos hit the road toward the United States. Unable to speak each other's language, their new beginning is quickly wrecked as a gang of street kids strands them in the desert overnight. Finding themselves as blood related strangers, they must now deal with their relationship such as it is while facing the past and any possibilities of a future together.
