Ariel is an attractive gay boy who lives with his older sister and their father in a rural area in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

In his puberty Ariel was seduced by a Catholic priest named Omar, who constantly takes advantage of his innocence and lack of experience playing with his emotions. Sick of this situation Ariel ends the relationship. Ariel’s father thinks that his children fail to have a normal sexual behavior, his daughter is distant on that regard and he is not sure whether to accept his son’s homosexuality. Ariel’s painful search for love is crowned when he meets a young rustler named Ramirez, who lives in hiding harassed by the police. Omar, distressed, requests an urgent transfer.
