The young John shares the days with his neighbour Liliana, for whom he has a special feeling. When he realizes that she begins to nurture affection for an older boy, John feels the need to change his behaviour and take a more masculine attitude. It is at this moment that he decides to begin to follow the model of his conservative father, a man who earn a living from artisanal and rudimentary fishing of lamprey. The small settlement where they live was once the stage of a terrible and unparalleled tragedy, when a bridge collapsed and killed half the local population. On the day that John's transformation process witnesses the limit of what is acceptable, a new tragedy is starting to emerge.
