Costa Rica - Chile - Argentina María José's life moves back and forth between the monotony of class at the university, her eternally distant parents, rugby training and dares with her gay friend. Emotionally disconnected from her environment, when she meets Javier, she tries to start a relationship with him. But all her efforts to live a “normal” life cannot succeed. She is carrying a secret that everybody avoids noticing: she is a few months into her pregnancy.
