Angel is confronted with his addiction to domestic violence and its consequences. His wife, Graciela, is severely affected by the physical and emotional violence suffered and tries to find help in her community, but support is refused. Depressed and without hope to escape the circle of violence, Graciela tries to commit suicide. Angel saves her and understands that life with violence is unsupportable. Confronted with this reality, Angel decides to change and recuperate his family. The process of reconstruction of his identity represents a great challenge for Angel; he is obliged to confront himself, his “machismo” culture and his proper existential void. The ups and downs of his recuperation force him to open himself to a process of soul-searching and the profound changes of behavior and habits that are required to achieve an authentic transformation. His love for Graciela and his children and the desire to avoid the loss of his family give Angel the strength to fight for them and for his own happiness. To overcome his own existential void, he starts the painful process of searching for the roots of violence he suffered as a child because of the disrespect for his mazahua culture and his mother language.
