Paco Chavez leads a careless and charming life on the coast of Ecuador.

He is surrounded by illicit drugs, and engaged in a forbidden love affair with Lucia, his former high school sweetheart, who is now married to another man.

One night, he and his younger brother Luis, a punk musician with an even bigger drug problem, enter their parent’s home to steal a porcelain horse to pawn in order to score more drugs.

Their father catches them and a fight ensues. The consequences of that fight will haunt both brothers forever, and will change the lives of everyone around them.
