On a remote isolated hilltop in an unnamed South American country, eight teen guerrilla fighters form a tightly cloistered ad hoc family living out of an abandoned bunker on behalf of a shadowy outfit simply known as the Organization. With no real purpose or goal other than to receive combat training given by the ferocious Mensajero (former guerrilla fighter Wilson Salazar), to take care of a dairy cow named Shakira, and to keep alive an American hostage simply known as Doctora, the teens revel in an increasingly unbridled hedonism.
