The lonely life of Eliécer, piper from a coastal town, is suddenly interrupted by the death of his father and the existence of a young girl, who turns out to be his step-sister. Eliecer's mission is incomprehensible, to take the girl to her mother who abandoned her to begin a new life in Bogota. A place that only exists on maps for Eliecer.
