Delia is a young woman who survived a river-flood, along with her mother and two sons. They live in a poor neighborhood of Caracas. She works hard trying to rebuild their lives, but she soon discovers that her sons, William (17) and Santiago (11), are exposed to a violent and dangerous environment. While Raiza, the grandmother, is the living image of hopelessness.

The four characters depict an image of a society in which the power of love keeps people united, in spite of the various challenges.
