Carlos and Natalia are an attractive couple in their mid-20s without vocational training. He works on a building site for low wages, while she is supported by her mother and sees no real perspective for herself on the job market. Seduced by the idea of easy money, the pair agree to make a soft porn film. Soon afterwards, Natalia finds out she's pregnant and now the problems begin in earnest. In impressive pictures, the film tells of the scandal and tragedy of a generation that has the stark choice between emigration and exploitation.
