Living a life of cold indifference, Clemente, a moneylender and pawnbroker in Lima, finds a newborn infant abandoned in his apartment. He takes the baby to the police, who dismiss him and say that the infant is his responsibility. Clemente sets off on an unsuccessful search for the mother, whom he thinks is a prostitute. Meanwhile, Sofia, a lonely neighbor, helps care for the baby and slowly begins a relationship with Clemente, who's warming to the child.
