Niñato. When fatherhood and rap go hand in hand

David is an unemployed single father. He lives with his parents, his child, his sister and his own inner child, a family bubble with a dynamic that he has learned to keep afloat. Yet, as an occasional rapper, in his free time he dedicates himself to his great passion: hip hop.

Shown in a continuous line of time, director Adrián Orr positions the viwer as a witness in real time of how David is learning to teach and to motivate the children to keep working and have dreams even when his have not come true.
