Synopsis : 

Ojos que no ven narrates six stories of differing lenghts linked to one another by work, family, social and political connections. The characters come from different social classes, are of different ages in this attempt to draw a global social portrait. The opening scene shows two old men in a public hospital who constantly needle and insult each other, no holds barred. Narrated with humor, but with another tone, are the tales of Rodolfo (the judge's aid) and Eva, a young girl who cares about nothing except making a name for herself in the world of techno-cumbia dance music as well as those of Martín Chauca, Angélica and Manuel Pareja, two ex-agents trying to cover the tracks of tehir past.
