Framed by high mountain chains that surround the city of Monterrey, three youngsters live passions and dilemmas, roaming between the steep slums and the luxury districts. Aspiring young filmmaker Neto chances upon a beautiful young girl, Cori, window shopping, and is immediately smitten. He captures her and her boyfriend Guiripi shoplifting a pair of sneakers, and then he follows the girl to where she lives. Neto becomes obsessed with the girl; he stalks her. When Cori notices shes being followed she runs away and loses one of her sneakers. When Neto arrives to give it back she finally falls for him and a love affair starts between the two. But Guiripi fights back. He has a surprise. Cori must make a choice between the two men. Or could it be that sometimes making no choice is the best choice? Maybe a love triangle doesnt necessarily have to be an unhappy one.
