CAMILO is a 23 year-old member of the middle class in Medellin, Colombia. After serving in the army, he returns home eager to make a new life for himself. His relationship with his family is a source of constant conflict, and finally they give him an ultimatum: find a job or move out. He spends most of his time playing in a neighborhood indoor soccer league, and there, in a stroke of luck, his coach BERRI offers him an opportunity to make some easy money. For CAMILO, however, this new opportunity is morally objectionable and one he initially rejects. In a fateful decision, eventually he concedes and decides to accept the job, thereby involving himself in an uncomfortable, not to mention illegal, situation.
Later on CAMILO meets SOL, a young girl studying classical music at the local university. Immediately he becomes infatuated with her, intent on learning everything about her. They fall in love. Eager to shed the ghosts of his past, CAMILO forges a new identity for himself but eventually someone returns from his past threatening to untangle CAMILO’S web of lies and reveal his true identity to SOL. Can CAMILO fight of his ghosts and keep his new life on track?
