Pedro returns home to a mountain village in Guerrero after years of working in the US. He finds his daughters older, and more distant than he imagined. His wife still has the same smile. Having saved some earnings from two trips to the US, he hopes to now make a better life, and even to pursue his dreams by starting a band: Copa Kings. While working in the fields, Pedro begins to mentor a teenager who dreams of the US. That place somehow always feels very present, practically knocking at the door.
