Arturo is a frugal sixty-year-old taxi driver with less than 24 hours to make a two thousand dollars. He just received an urgent plea call from his son, Ramiro, who ran away to Amsterdam three years ago. On that same day, Leandro, Arturo’s youngest son, plans to steal his father’s money before running away to the coastal nightclubs. When destiny crosses their paths with one another, Arturo will once again become the man that drove Ramiro to run away three years ago.

Arturo, un parsimonioso taxista de sesenta años, tiene que conseguir dos mil dólares en menos de 24 horas. Su hijo mayor, Ramiro, que se fugó de casa hace tres años, acaba de llamar urgente, desde Amsterdam pidiéndole ayuda. Ese mismo día, Leandro, el hijo menor que aún vive con él, planea robarle sus ahorros antes de huir a la costa.. Cuando el destino los enfrente, Arturo se transformará de nuevo en aquel hombre que obligó a Ramiro a fugarse tres años atrás.
