PlotEdit

Pablo a.k.a. "El Bola" (Juan José Ballesta) is a twelve-year-old boy with an overly strict father (Manuel Morón). He has few friends at school until a new kid, Alfredo, arrives. The warm, caring atmosphere in Alfredo's family provides a stark contrast to Pablo's oppressive father. Pablo's experience of his friend's family teaches him to confront his worst fears.
