The President and his family run their country with an iron fist, enjoying a luxurious lifestyle while their subjects live in misery.
From one day to the next, a violent coup d’état puts an end to the dictatorship and the President becomes the most wanted man in the country.
With his 5-year-old grandson, he then tries to reach the sea, where a ship is waiting to transport them away from danger. Disguised as street musicians, they are confronted by the suffering and hatred that the President has provoked by his policies and attitude.
