    • The tale of two parallel stories narrates the student movement in Chile. A teenager immersed in the political climate in his school and a former political prisoner of the Pinochet dictatorship find in the social and student's movement the sense to their own history. Darío (17) and Miguel Ángel (58) both join the “1800 hours for free education”- marathon, one of the most important expressions of the Chilean student movement in the past years. Together with the viewer they share their different experiences and points of view, connecting history with the current capital of Chile.
