Luis and Nelida have both problems at their own respective homes. Luis has a brother who is involved in crime whilst Nelida is a teenage girl who lives with her divorced mother and who does not seem to understand her. One day she wakes up earlier and sees a man leaving her mother's bedroom. This was the final straw for Nelida and she decides to leave home for good. Walking along in the deserted streets of the city she is approached by Luis who worries about her being vulnerable and all by herself. Few minutes later Luis gained Nelida's confidence by offering to listen to her problems and to help. The inevitable soon happens and they become lovers, but would they be able to stay together? Hugo del Carril has once again probed to be an impeccable director, mastering every single aspect of the film with professionalism and sensibility. Del Carril is a director who is very much underestimated by the general public in this area of work, as he was also a very well known actor and tango singer, professions these in which he also excelled. But has a director we see his brilliant skill and his wonderful distinctive touch in each of the scenes of the film. He inputs pathos and emotions at the right moment, paying attention to each single detail. This is a wonderful film that has not dated at all and that tackles problems that are still current in today's society and especially amongst teenagers.
