Barrio La Esperanza. A small sector of a Macondo-like island forgotten by the catastrophic effects of an economical depression and drug addiction. Three lives are pushed to the limit and reveal how their pursuit of hope dehumanizes them and exposes their animal instincts. Ingrid, a repressed and barren midwife in her 50s, has always wanted a child. While working at the local hospital, she realizes that most of the pregnant women are heroin addicts, making Ingrid wonder if she is better suited to be a mother than they will ever be. The envy and vicious hope pushes Ingrid on a downward spiral with no turning back. At the same time, Fausto, a former pro boxer and now a cock fighter owner in his 40’s, trains his teenage son, Santito, to become a boxing champion. Due to a massive debt in cock fights to the local bookie, Rubén, Fausto is forced to use Santito as the cruel vehicle to get the money he owes by submitting him to the underground fighting scene. Lastly we have Lucho, a fat kid that commutes in his bike all over town, and who is trying to get the affections of Sara, his junkie stepsister. But when Sara’s life is suddenly in danger, Lucho sees the opportunity to be her hero. Paradoxically, Lucho’s innocence and good intentions are used by his own family for a greater evil. When he is by himself, Lucho finds a friend on a stray horse tied to a tree, which serves as the perfect metaphor of a society destroyed by the indifference and intolerance of men.
