Summary
In a shantytown in the slums of Buenos Aires, Julian and Nicolas work tirelessly to help the local people. Nicolas joins Julian in overseeing the construction of a hospital following the failure of a project he was leading in which paramilitary forces assassinated members of the community. Deeply troubled by his actions, Nicolas finds solace in Luciana. As Nicolas' beliefs wane, work on the hospital is halted, and the faith of the entire community is put to the test
