December 1983. A plane carrying 154 young boys and girls, the children of Uruguayan exiles, crosses the Atlantic. They have been away from their country for years. The flight is loaded with hope and uncertainty. The children are ambassadors of exile. They come from different places in Europe: Spain, Italy, Holland, France, Sweden, Austria and Germany. Thirty years later the main roles are played by the characters of that first flight in a story that connects two eras and two generations. Parents and children appear in a tale that intertwines exile, family and politics. There is the past and present, reality and utopia.
