Manrique is in charge of guarding what is left of an abandoned salt mine in a desolate spot of the Colombian Caribbean. In this job he has found the excuse to isolate himself from the world he does not care about. However, the extraordinary appearance of a pedigree dog who likes chasing fireflies in the darkness and the unexpected arrival of Valeria, the thirteen-year-old daughter he did not know existed, help Manrique recover the joy of living.
