Argentina | 2013 | 95 min.

Four best friends in school – Federico, Paula, Graciela and Fabián- decide to skip class and sneak into the school basement. But Miriam, the class’ gossip and teacher’s pet, discovers them and threatens them. She will rat on them if they don’t let her stay and be part of the adventure. Now, what was meant to be a time of intimacy fun between friends is turned into a time of jealousy, fear, hatred. Hidden crushes are exposed, unveiling a series of conflicts unthinkable of before skipping class. Meanwhile, upstairs, on the school’s surface, the teacher and the principal discover that the five kids are missing and warn their parents, who react in different ways, hence revealing conflicts of their own.
