Twelve-year-old Socrates spends the summer days of 1988 hurtling through the streets of his sleepy mountain village on his bicycle, setting off homemade firecrackers and tormenting the local residents. Socrates' carefree life comes to an abrupt end when he discovers that his best friend Marcos and his family are suffering abuse at the hands of Marcos' violent father. In a bid for justice, Socrates decides to put his firecracker-making skills to use. But what starts as a naïve attempt to teach the man a lesson lands Socrates at the center of a murder investigation, and exposes a family secret that will change his life forever.
