In search of a better life, Max and Leo, 8 and 5 years old, are taken from Mexico to Albuquerque (USA) by Lucia, their mother. While they wait for her to return from work, the children explore the unsafe neighborhood through their apartment window and listen to the stories, rules and English lessons that she leaves for them on an old cassette recorder. Building up an imaginary universe with their drawings, they long for their mother to fulfill the promise of taking them to Disneyland.
