Their young son disappears in the woods. Awkward truths surface when the couple are forced to confront their different roles as parents.

Ana is at the wheel. Alongside her Mateo, her husband. They are driving through the woods. The tension in the car is palpable. Gradually, it becomes clear that they have just left their seven-year-old son Lucas at the side of the road as a punishment, to teach him a lesson after he has badly misbehaved. But when they return to collect him, all they find is his cap. What was intended as a punishment soon turns into a nightmare for the parents. Each blames the other for his disappearance.
