Like father, like son

After 20 years in jail, Juan “El Candela”, an infamous thief, is released from prison and reunited with his son, Juan “El Chispa,” and his best friend, Cristo. While “El Candela” tries to adapt to a new strange world, his son plans  the quickest and easiest way to get all the money he needs to realize his dream of becoming a hip-hop star. Taking his idolized father as a role model, “El Chispa” and Cristo decide to  rob a mansion they believe is inhabited.
