Lucas is a mexican teenager who has just arrived with his mother and sister to start over in a gray industrial city in the Toluca Valley.

He works at a burger joint where his manipulative manager is constantly trying to get the most out of him. He spends his afternoons with his colleague and friend Oscar, a nervous otaku who resists work, family and cosmic pressures.

Until he decides to go on a journey and entrusts his most valuable possessions with Lucas, who through the discovery of photography will find a way to capture the light that he observes around him and bring it back home.
