Ibrahim, a Muslim convert, returns to his country after living and studying religion with his wife, mother-in-law and children for 7 years in Pakistan. With silent tenacity and supported by his faith, he must assume a leadership that allows the preservation of his beliefs, leading his family towards internal harmony in front of a prejudiced environment. By coincidence, the family has settled very close to the most important religious festival in Chile, an unorthodox mix of Christianity and indigenous beliefs. The juxtaposition of this devout Muslim family with a multicolored and massive festivity gives us the ideal framework to reflect on human differences and elusive tolerance.
