Marcel (30), a young music producer, is forced to return to his hometown after fifteen years, Margarita Island (Venezuela), to sell his father's house, who has just died. Once there, he meets Chino (30), his childhood friend. He also meets Charo (15), Chino’s younger sister, who in a fit of rage secretly kills a gamecock (fighting cock) that was under the care of his brother, but really belonged to a gangster named Humberto, who has control of the town’s water supply, and is also Chino’s boss. Charo is the price that Humberto sets for his dead rooster. Chino desperately seeks to pay off his debt in any other way. Humberto orders Marcel to be beaten, which makes Marcel reconnect with his violent past, and in complicity with Charo, they decide to attack him.
