Martina and Manuel cross the border from Bolivia to Argentina as drug “mules”. When taking refuge in a bordertown hotel, Manuel dies with the cocaine capsules inside his body. But the drug traffickers don’t care. They still demand that Martina deliver the drugs she has swallowed and the drugs in Manuel’s body to a nearby city. There is no way out. There is only one person she can ask for help, Javier, the father she has never met. She calls him and asks him to come to the hotel. He owes her, after all.
