Frente al deterioro de las máquinas y el avance de las nuevas tecnologías, los históricos imprenteros se encuentran cerrando sus talleres. Al mismo tiempo, un grupo de jóvenes redescubre la mayor innovación técnica en la historia de la palabra escrita: la impresión de caracteres móviles; pero se les dificultará aprender el oficio ya que siempre fue transmitido de persona a persona. El último mecánico gráfico del país será el encargado de enseñarles. Podrá este antiguo oficio resistir el paso del tiempo?
