Santiago du Chili today. Teresa, a social worker specialized in contraception methods, believes she has total control over her life until the day she learns that her 15-year-old daughter is pregnant. Edmundo, an unambitious 40-year-old hairdresser, still lives with his mother and wants to buy a car or... replace the family vault. Mario, a clarinettist, auditions for the philharmonic orchestra but ends up in the carabineros band. As for Patricia, mother of a young baby, she drifts, carried along by life's rhythm.
These inhabitants cross paths, without seeing each other, in an agitated city, too caught up are they by their own daily lives. Women and men who are brought together only by their respective desire to fulfill their destinies.
