Carlos’ crisis seems to get worse when he gets home and finds out that his dog, Rocco, bit the neighbors’ son. Although his son, Luis, tries to prove his dog is not guilty, Carlos’ neighbors threaten him by the possibility of expelling the dog out of the building. It seems that Luis is the only one who can save Rocco by telling the truth…
