Santiago, Chile, 1989. The last place Tina Aguilar wants to be. Forced to visit her father for the first time in years after her parents' divorce, she doesn't understand why he spends all his time with politics and alcohol rather than with her. Fortunately for Tina, a cute motorcycle-riding boy has taken an interest in her--but his presence is far from incidental or innocent. A tale of deadly deception and the redemptive power of love set in the tense final months of the Pinochet dictatorship.
