January 1st

Twelve-year-old Sebastián’s father has just left. He has supposedly gone to work in Santo Domingo, but everyone knows Sebastián’s parents have split up. In a fit of pique, Sebastián helps a local criminal break into his mother’s restaurant. However, the thief makes off with more than agreed, including an old piano, an heirloom of his father’s. Together with his best friend, Sebastián sets off to the city to get the piano back—and reunite his family.
