After a family gathering, the younger members go out to celebrate the San Juan festivities. A wild night ending in an episode of abuse between two cousins. Him, 18, her, 13. This incident splits the family in two. Over the course of the summer, unresolved conflicts get revisited, grievances aired and the struggle of the two mothers to defend their respective children pits them against one another over the subjective aspects of the event. In the end, a sentencing is unavoidable. The fears over a split in the family that runs throughout the film ends up fading away during a trial in which the victim is defended and the sacredness a 13-year-old girl’s body is not called into question.
