Buenos Aires, 1977. A 'task force' working for the fascist Argentine military government kidnaps Claudio Tamburrini (Rodrigo De La Serna), goalkeeper of a B-league soccer team, and takes him to a clandestine detention center known as Sere Mansion: a forbidding old building in the suburban neighborhood of Moron.

Claudio enters a living hell of interrogations, beatings, humiliations and betrayals. A nightmare world of arbitrary lunatic rules and relentless violence, mental and physical. Alongside other young detainees, he battles to survive while awaiting his fate to be decided.

After four months of imprisonment, with execution looking certain, Claudio and three other prisoners make their desperate move. Forcing open a window in the middle of a thunderstorm, completely naked, they jump into the void. Their flight into the future begins.

Based on the book "Pase libre - La fuga de la Mansión Seré" by Claudio Tamburrini.
