Storyline

Barrio La Esperanza. A small sector of a Macondo-like island forgotten by the catastrophic effects of an economical depression and drug addiction. Three lives are pushed to the limit and reveal how their pursuit of hope dehumanizes them and exposes their animal instincts. Ingrid, a repressed and barren midwife in her 50s, has always wanted a child. While working at the local hospital, she realizes that most of the pregnant women are heroin addicts, making Ingrid wonder if she is better suited to be a mother than they will ever be. The envy and vicious hope pushes Ingrid on a downward spiral with no turning back. At the same time, Fausto, a former pro boxer and now a cock fighter owner in his 40's, trains his teenage son, Santito, to become a boxing champion. Due to a massive debt in cock fights to the local bookie, Rubén, Fausto is forced to use Santito as the cruel vehicle to get the money he owes by submitting him to the underground fighting scene. Lastly we have Lucho, a fat kid ... Written by Angel Manuel Soto
