(with activable English subtitles)

The young siblings Leticia and Fernando live in an old-fashioned home, run by their domineering, religious, and very traditional father. When the father sees Fernando kissing another boy, his intense contempt for his son darkens the household. The situation affects Leticia’s first choreography assignment in school, and assisted by her brother, the dance becomes an outlet for their shared frustrations, until the unthinkable occurs.
