Four youngsters live in the Guerrero colony of a city with no place for them. Four characters populated by the same dreams, fears and boredom as any kid their age.

Each one sees the money they could get from the heist as the potential solution to their problems.

In her determination to ensure that the rules are obeyed and misbehaviour scolded, María Teresa, a teacher at the Colegio Nacional in Buenos Aires, follows the trail of a slight, perhaps non-existent, smell of tobacco.
