    • Synopsis
    • Alfonso is an old peasant who returns after 17 years to his home place because his only son, Gerardo, is suffering from a serious illness. Returning to the region, he discovers that everything that he once knew is no longer the same, and his family is about to be moved because of an invisible threat which runs through the vast maze of sugarcane filling everything with signs of destruction and death. In the face of these difficulties, ALFONSO does everything he can to get closer to his community before it is too late and to save what remains, even if it means erasing all traces of their existence.
