Enrique is an Andean teenage boxer who lives with his grandmother Digna. When he is chosen to represent the city of Huancayo in a national championship, the coach asks Enrique and the other local contestants for their IDs to register them and travel to the contest. For his teammates this isn’t a problem, but it is for Enrique; he is ashamed of his ID photo and insists on changing it. Between training and travel plans, Enrique becomes aware that the fight for his dreams isn’t only inside the boxing ring.
