    • Manuel is doing time in a prison in southern Chile, which collapses after a violent earthquake.
      He escapes in the middle of the catastrophe and returns to his home, only to discover that the ensuing tsunami has
      swept away his wife and daughter.
      As he advances through landscapes of utter destruction, the fugitive digs deeper into his own devastated life.
      This paradoxical freedom shall lead him to face the cruelty of nature and experience the limits of his own humanity
