Fernando’s life in Stockholm seems to be going nowhere. He is struggling with substance abuse and his despairing mother, Olga, wants him to go and spend time with his older brother Pablo in Colombia. Pablo has a plan on how to get Fernando clean in six months – but is Fernando ready to make a change ?
The painful effects of codependency take their toll as the once-enthusiastic Pablo gradually loses faith in his mission.
