"Estamos en una de esas etapas en las que nos salen muchas canciones pero seguimos pasándola bomba en el cuarto de ensayo. Somos amigas desde la secundaria y vamos juntas a los lugares de esparcimiento el chopo, la lagunilla y las fiestas donde Roberto pone la música más prendida de todos los tiempos. En la secu no íbamos en el mismo grupo, nos detectamos las unas a las otras por que, cada una a su modo, éramos las artistas de la escuela". De una fiesta a-go-gó en casa de la bajista de los Polka Dots en el pedregal de San Ángel a una reunión en la guarida del Mambas en rumbos dejados de la mano de Dios, con escala en el tianguis del Chopo para repartir flyers del próximo toquín. Así transcurre un fin de semana común y corriente de las integrantes de la banda de rock Las Juventudes Apáticas. Ahora mismo están atravesando una etapa creativa difícil con alguna desencuentro serio y altibajos en su amistad, y súmale las complicaciones amorosas con el caballero de piel color canela (que aparte de todo tiene novia)... La voz autorizada de María no solo nos hará asomarnos a la escena rockera defeña, sino a los conflictos y pasiones de una joven sensible y turbulenta."
