Euskadi 1985. It's summer time, the holidays are finally here. Marcos and his 3 friends, José Antonio, Paquito and Toni, anxiously await a promising summer break from the fresh view of a 12-year-old, who doesn't care about when, how and when. They will while away the hours in the maze life has prepared for them, in an old, turbulent and trembling Euskadi. A maze of painted walls, where rubber balls and dreams bounce together; all covered by a sky tainted in the grey of prefabricated concrete, where life and death no longer keep formal relationships.
