In a small, conservative Catholic town in the Highlands of Jalisco, Alex loses custody of his daughter. After a long legal fight, he looks for a way to fulfill the promise he made to her at birth – to always be with her – while defending his dreams: fatherhood, music, being a man. The short film explores what makes us who we are. What does identity feed on? What makes us mothers or fathers? Who can disavow this link? How long and how is a promise kept? To what extent do promises define us? How is masculinity built?
