It never rains in Lima. Teo (12) lives with his father Luis, a former physics professor and inventor, who is obsessed in creating a rain machine. Teo helps him in his duty. Beca (16) is the leader of an espionage band who is aware of Teo’s many talents and suggests him to join the band. When Luis’ apartment is about to get seized, Teo accepts her proposal. The money he makes helps Luis to concentrate on the machine. But the more Teo gets involved with the band, the more he hesitates about his father. Teo confronts him and puts their relationship in risk. When Teo leaves the apartment and abandons him, a humiliated Luis will turn the machine to its maximum power to prove his son he’s not mad, before their relationship breaks forever.
