Tomás, a persevering young dreamer, is accepted at the Air Force pilot school. At his feet is the opportunity to fulfill his desire to leave Coya, the monotonous village where he lives with his hard-working mother Ingrid. However, the dream to fly and leave his precarious reality is interrupted by the pregnancy of his girlfriend Sofia. In Coya, Tomás’ dreams face the social barriers of present-day Chile, forcing him to decide between taking care of his son and disappointing his mother, or reaching his goals.
