Synopsis

In Buenos Aires, Exe (25) loses his pathetic work and no longer wants to look for another. His neighborhood and his friends seem to him as strangers. On the Internet he discovers Alf, a Mozambican guy, who also has a pathetic job. Alf also follows another boy, Archie, who escapes to the jungle. In the exotic context of the vegetation, Archie follows the route of ants to the anthill. One of the ants leaves and in its route finds Canh, a Filipino boy, who goes to his strange and beautiful city and that also has a pathetic work. In Argentina, Mozambique, and the Philippines, three young boys have jobs that depress them but open their eyes to other elements and points of view of a world they did not perceive before, opening doors to a plane as daily as it is magical.
