Nató is an 11-year-old who lives on the southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Since he was little, he has practiced soccer in the hopes of achieving the dream his brother, Jefferson, never could – to become a professional soccer player and bring his family out of poverty. Nató discovers that Jefferson owes a considerable amount of money to the local drug trafficking gang and that he is dangerously entangled in their world. 
From that moment on, Nató and his friend Klane are willing to do anything possible to help Jefferson, no matter the risks nor consequences.
