    • Synopsis
    • After his father has died, Elder Mamani is forced to live with his grandmother -far
from the city- to stay away from trouble. He has to learn to be a worker.
      His godfather, Francisco has to take care of Elder's acceptance in the mining
company. Francisco and Elder end up working together. But Elder skips work daily. Francisco endures this grudgingly. His co workers mock him because of
the behaviour of his godson.
When Francisco finds Elder lost in the smokey alleys about to be blasted, he leaves him alone there, because of his survival, the miners that rescue him see him as an amulet of good luck.
Now the miners have to travel together to the tropic, in which context the conflict between Elder and Francisco unravels.
