Pedro – husband, father, and musician – struggles to make a living in his village in Mexico. After a three year absence working abroad in the US, Pedro returns home thinking that although he has missed many things, his life and the life of his family will be better because of his sacrifice. The film breaks into three acts: the return, the reality and the future. The return is presented as a success, but there is clash and estrangement because of his long absence. The reality is much more different than what he thought, but he desperately tries to grab it and overcome it. The future is packed with uncertainty and a decision must be made.
