Oliver, a middle class youth about to graduate from high school, organizes a trip around the Dominican Republic with his two best friends, Hemingway and Moises. Oliver wants to say goodbye to his girlfriend in the far-off town of Pedernales. Hemingway seeks to escape his oppressive family, and Moises is documenting the trip as a farewell to his love of photography before studying to be a civil engineer. Along the way, they encounter a Haitian hitchhiker, a famous photographer and an intriguing artist – all of whom teach them something valuable along their journey before they reach their destination for a final farewell.
