A bike, high school, joints, girls, a rock band. Pierre is a middle-class teenager like many others. One day the police knock at his door and his life turns upside down: After a forced DNA test, the woman he thought was his mother is arrested. Pierre is forced to be a part of a new family and to change his address, school and even his name. In his new identity he is called Felipe. And that is the moment when his most intimate and hidden secrets will come out, as painful as they may be.
