Logline

The difference between good and bad upbringing becomes clear with increasing trepidation.

Don’t ever leave the property, the counselors warn the young men at a summer camp in rural Mexico. Organized annually by the private religious school their rich parents send them to, the camp is intended to give the boys physical, moral, and religious training so that they become tomorrow’s elite. One day, however, a large hole is discovered in the fence that marks the perimeter. The “dangerous” local world outside threatens to intrude, but the most disturbing elements are already lurking inside, in the minds of the boys and especially their caretakers.
