Andy´s world changes completely when his mother has an accident.
When there is no one to take care of him, the boy is carried to Cuernavaca to his paternal grandmother´s house. While her mother is debating between life and death, the child will face the rejection of his grandmother, the seductive and dangerous world of the son of the gardener and will start the search for his father.
