Santiago Chile, 1978. Obsessed with the idea of turning into the Chilean “Tony Manero” (the personage of John Travolta in “Saturday in Night Fever”), Raúl commits a series of crimes to obtain a suit like his idol had. Meanwhile, his neighbors take part in secret activities in opposition to the dictatorship of Pinochet.
