Enedelia, pregnant with her third daughter, lives in Chamic, a border town in southeastern Mexico, which is crossed by the beginning of a war between criminal groups. The population spreads fear like a dull noise among the highways, mountain ranges, and rivers, to the point of disrupting the dreams of those who live there.
