    14 year olds Flama (Daniel Miranda) and Moko (Diego Castaño) are ready to spend the perfect Sunday afternoon, left alone at Flama’s apartment with a supply of soda, video games, and money for pizza money. But their teenage bliss is interrupted by unexpected events, then crashed by their neighbor Rita (Danny Perea) who needs to bake a cake, and Ulises (Enrique Arreola), the pizza deliveryman who refuses to leave unpaid after being 11 seconds late on his delivery. As the afternoon goes by and the kids are unable to kill time in the usual way, they inevitably walk the tightrope of adolescent existence.

    Flama (Daniel Miranda) y Moko (Diego Castaño) están listos para pasar una perfecta tarde de domingo. Solos en el apartamento de Flama, con un suplemento de refresco, videojuegos, y dinero para pizza. Pero su éxtasis adolescente se ve interrumpido por eventos inesperados, e invadido por Rita (Danny Perea), la vecina que necesita hornear un pastel, y Ulises (Enrique Arreola), el repartidor de pizza que no se quiere ir antes de que le paguen, después de llegar once segundos tarde a su entrega. Al pasar la tarde, los chicos son incapaces de matar el tiempo de la usual manera, e inevitablemente caminan por la cuerda floja de la existencia adolescente.
