SANTANA works as a dogcatcher, picking up stray animals. Amateur drummer, he is a friendly guy, averse to trouble, who has always kept violence away from the doorsteps of his home. Until the day when, in a school, he catches a big and beautiful dog. Some days later, comes the animal’s owner: BABYFACE, a sociopath ex-cop. The man is furious, considering his dog to be “kidnapped”, and demands immediate restitution of his pet. But the dog is not coming back: according to the law, the animal was put to sleep. By a misunderstanding, Babyface argues with Santana, blaming him for his pet’s death. From this moment on, Santana’s life will be completely changed.
