Synopsis

Rafa and Yunior - 12 and 9 - are living with their Uncle in the country, because their mother is too poor to take care of them. The boys get bored on the animal farm until they meet Ysrael, a boy who wears a mask to hid his deformed face caused by a bite from a pig when he was little. The boys decide to visit Ysrael and remove the mask to see what he looks like, never suspecting this experience would mark them for the rest of their lives.
