Mariana Rondón's serious,  frisky Venezuelan drama tells the story of nine-year-old Junior with a beautiful head of curls in a poor distrcit of Caracas. He doesn't join in playing football with the local kids, dislikes his curls and dreams of being photographed as a pop star with beautiful straight hair. When he fanatically starts straightening his hair again, his mother - a sacked security guard - gets angry. She's afraid he's gay, and that does not bode well in Caracas. While she feels guilty and veers between worried and indifferent, Junior's grandma doesn't seem to think it's a problem.
