Set in 1979, the film follows Juan, (12), who after years of exile, returns to Argentina with his family under fake identities. Juan's parents and his uncle Beto are members of the Montoneros Organization, who fight against the Military Junta that rules the country. Because of their political activities they are tracked down relentlessly, and the threat of capture and even death is constant. Yet, Juan's daily life is also full of warmth and humor, and he quickly and easily integrates into his new environment. His friends at school and the girl he has a gigantic crush on, María, know him as Ernesto, a name he must not forget, since his family's survival is at stake. Juan accepts this reality and follows all of his parents' rules until one day he is told that they need to move again immediately, and leave his friends and Maria behind without any explanation.
