Two boys who don't really fit-in become friends at school, and do the normal kid things together. As the story unfolds, however, you realize something is not quite right with the kids' families - and you're not sure exactly what, or with which family. Then you start seeing the tip of a horrifying iceberg as it becomes evident that one boy is being seriously abused. This poignant film won more than 30 international awards, including four Goyas (Spain's equivalent of the Oscar).
