Lalo, a fourteen year old farmhand daydreams about his classmate Ana. In an effort to win her affection, he decides to buy her the latest smartphone. His hard work goes down the drain when his mother takes his savings to help her sick cousin’s hospital expenses. Lalo’s urgency for cash leads him to local gangsters, who siphon gasoline from government pipelines and sell it on the black market. His plan backfires when he realizes that one of the gasoline thieves has feelings for Ana as well.
