Buenos Aires, century end. Elsa is a young girl, who looks for a worthy job that allows her to leave the mediocrity.
Her dream is to travel to Europe to live “another life.” And that idea feeds her with its grandfather's stories, an anarchist emigrant that speaks to her of an Europe lost in the time.
Walter, Laura and Toni are her friends in the city. Partners of small illicit adventures that allow Elsa to come closer to her dream.
Walter and Elsa maintain a near relationship to the love that doesn't impede Elsa to follow her dream “ to travel to another possible life.”
To their to weigh Walter it will find the form that Elsa can begin to complete her dream.
In Europe, Elsa is collided against the reality. And that reality is not the one that imagined.
But a force in its interior will take to Elsa, in spite of everything, to meet with its destination.
