In this hauntingly beautiful film Candido and Braulio are twin brothers growing up near the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. While Candido stays home secluded due to his albinism, Braulio helps his grandfather sell coal in the market. Their life takes a turn for the worst after the unexpected death of their grandfather. Now Braulio will need to look after his brother and will attempt to make ends meet in the border town market. All the while, Candido dreams of the eventual return of their absent father.
