    • Synopsis
    • Covid-19 arrived in Guatemala, making poverty, unemployment and inequality more evident in the country. Faced with the humanitarian crisis stemming from the pandemic, Milo and Byron, the owners of a tiny café-bar, decided to distribute food to the neediest with what little they had, without thinking that their example of empathy and solidarity would spread throughout the country, adding hundreds of volunteers and replicating their action in different cities.
