It tells the story of the children of Barrio Triste (Sad Neighborhood), the common name given to the Corazón de Jesús neighborhood in Medellín, Colombia. A place mostly dedicated to mechanics and car spare parts. Adult children walk barefooted among this landscape of tires, spare parts, tins and filth. They live in a world of pavement that witnessed them promptly growing up among drugs, violence and prostitution. Children of nobody who have no notion of authority and who see themselves mistreated by society.
There walk the children that will become men while Colombia ignores them.
