    • Synopsis
    • In a hidden spot of the docile plain in the Pampa, with unbreakable tenacity, it is presented the superstition, nesting in the eyes of a lonely, old man, Juan.
      To the shelter of the land and its roads, with a fragile tribute among his hands, Juan travels through an almost desert village, drunken in the magic and the vitality of the popular beliefs.
      A story of characters without company where the difficulties are presented at the time of entering the game to give and to receive affection.
      Hardly supported in the wealth of the flat landscape, in its straight and unreachable horizons, develops a negligible story supported in the documentary registration. In this parallel appears with harshness, the situations and the internal states of the characters, represented in real time.
      Juan crosses all a territory, trying to find the faith healer of the next village, to be healed of the pain that bothers him. In his hands he only carries a small tree, a fruit of his own garden, his only ownership, that will deliver in the shape of payment by his salvation.
      A small history, a trip on foot that presents us, step by step, the strain of the simple things, the pain and the loneliness.
