Valentin is a nine-year-old boy whose feuding parents have left him to be raised by his eccentric grandmother. With his father visiting only occasionally, Valentin is left to look to the other men in the neighborhood for father figures, and to replace his absent mother, he warms to Leticia, one of his father's many short-term girlfriends. When he tells her personal secrets about his father, however, Valentin jeopardizes their relationship. One of Valentin dreams is of being an astronaut one day. He sets out to discover the harsh realities about his parents, while bringing joy to those around him.
