    • Synopsis
    • Jesús Vallejo and his son Juan Diego, are the only two inhabitants remaining in the ghost-town of La Estancia.
      Their peace and quiet is altered when a filmmaker, arrives to shoot a documentary about the two solitary characters.
      A very close relationship develops between the three of them, but it lasts only a few days, until the documentarian departs back to the city, but promising to return to La Estancia soon.
      Many years pass by before that promise is fulfilled, and by then the only thing remaining in town are the echoes of its voices.
