Chilean director Andrés Wood tells the story of an exceptional friendship set against the backdrop of the 1973 military coup in Chile: Gonzalo and Pedro are eleven years old – one of them is from a wealthy district, the other from an illegal poor quarter. While Pedro and Gonzaloare gradually overcoming their differences, their country is faced with the greatest political upheaval in its history. An exceptionally moving film.
