    • Synopsis
    • Selva (13) lives in a Caribbean coastal town. As she grows up, she tries to keep her family together, but this proves to be harder every day. It seems her father will never come back; Elena, her only motherly figure, disappears at the town festivities; and her grandfather obsesses over his imaginary goats as he lets himself die.
      Between imaginary landscapes and mysterious shadows, Selva debates whether to help her grandfather achieve his death wish, even though this means going alone through her last moments of childhood.
