Jorge leaves Lima's suburbs, his family, the shared house and the totally wrecked motorcycle taxi to seek his fortune in the Andes, at La Rinconada, the highest elevation inhabited city in the world. Here he rejoins his cousin, who's been working there for years, with whom he shares a metal sheet hut. Jorge immediately finds a job and his first day becomes a sort of initiation that ends in a cellar in the middle of the night, among pile of beer and many other miners. Henceforth the movie abandons the protagonist to focus on other characters living in La Rinconada.
Annibale trades in gold and is looking for new girls for his club.
Senna's been working in a cellar since many years and wants to change her life.
Everyday life and mythopoesis mingle a place which is the epitome of contemporary gold rush.
