Costa Rica - Chile Among the streets of a chaotic and charming San José (Costa Rica), a messenger with a big blotch in the face drives an old motorcycle to the beat of glam rock. Mancha (Blotch) needs to stop thinking that things in life just happen on their own. Surrounded by his messenger friends that just got fired, Mancha will have to decide between the freedom of the streets or life in a small island without bikes where his girlfriend Clara, the only person that seems to understand him, is going to live.
