In Mexico City, Gilberto Cortés (actor Alberto Estrella) is a single father who has a close, loving relationship with his young son Mario. (Actor Imanol plays young Mario. Later, Abraham Ramos plays Mario as a young adult).

Mario is an adorable little boy - normal, cute, smart and happy. Gilberto works as an actor and is involved in a play called, "Bandera Negra" (The Black Flag), about a father who fights to save his son from a death penalty.

As time goes by, Gilberto becomes a successful performer, especially in the play "Bandera Negra." Everything is fine till one day his son is molested by an acquaintance of Gilberto. All the light goes out of little Mario and he is not the same for some time. Soon, life seemingly returns for the father and son.

A few years later, Mario is a grown up and leaves home for college in Texas. Not long after, an event takes place, which puts him on death row. Mario is scheduled to die by lethal injection. In an example of life imitating art, like the play ("Bandera Negra") that Gilberto successfully performed in, he now has to fight for his son's life.

Carlos García Agraz directs this touching story. It is told with ease as the film starts with the present, and then reverts to the past, and then back to the present to allow the viewer to find out what happened. The music has a haunting melody and fits the story well.

Actor Alberto Estrella work is very impressive, as are actors Imanol and Abraham Ramos. The strong father - son bond, is very convincing. Their personalities come through the screen.
