Demolishing kilometers - as they say, traveling through the streets of a magical yet complex country, is the purpose of Jorge, a teenager that follows with passion and fury his beloved team The Leopards of Atlético Bucaramanga. Now, when is time to play the last game of the year, an away match for the comeback to A Division, he and his friends will embark on a journey holding their illusions with heart and guts through the highways of a rough country that has no future for them.
