To live in Estrella del Sur is not an easy task. Four teenagers have grown up together in a violent environment, lacking any real hope for the future. The youth confront a "social purge" movement that threatens the very stability of their school district, and a new literature teacher will share their frustrations, struggles, and the tough lessons of daily life that threaten their dream to travel to the sea.
