Living with his mother and working as a farmhand, 14-year-old Lalo (Eduardo Banda) believes buying a smartphone for his high-school crush is the only surefire way to her heart. When his mother must use his savings to pay medical bills, Lalo decides to approach the local huachicoleros for help, who quickly enlist his aid in their business of illegally siphoning gas to take advantage of the country's shortage and re-sell on the black market. As Lalo naively becomes more involved with the huachicoleros' work, an uneasy air of violence pervades the world around him, while investigators narrow their search for those responsible.
