Early 2000s. Diego and Ivan, two preadolescent boys, will soon have to leave the small town where they were born to go to study high school in different cities. Friends since childhood, this will be the first time that their paths are separated.

Like every afternoon since they were children, the boys hang out gor a football match in a plain of a small forest away from the village. Diego seems to rely too much on the life that awaits him away from the village. Ivan, on the other hand, cannot hide his fear. At some point, Diego kicks the ball particularly hard, and it disappears somewhere in the forest. Ivan runs behind it and finds it stuck on top of a tree. Judging the place where it has ended up, it can already be seen that it will not be easy to recover it.

Diego doesnt make much effort to get it back, but the situation takes an unexpected turn. After Ivan decides to try to get the ball back with hope, some facts will mark this childhood friendship forever.
