Tonight, is the night, a major poetry slam competition where the winner will be awarded the opportunity to take his voice beyond the local scene. However, for Daniel it will be a night of havoc, revelations and redemptions. The preparation of the young urban poet is disturbed by the absence of his father, and the oppression of his mother, Rita, who depends on her son to lead her excessive lifestyle. When reality challenges Daniel’s ideals, will he see to it that the night ends in reconciliation with his loved ones or will he lose control of himself?
