Between 1997 and 2007, more than 30 young people committed suicide in the remote Argentine city of Las Heras. There were no indications of the causes for these suicides, and no one could explain what happened. Based on those suicides, and others that still occur today, this film explores those lives, trying to examine the emptiness and the mystery surrounding them and their deaths.
