Colombian fisherman Turco yearns to return to the land he abandoned years ago due to an ongoing conflict. When his son is killed, it shatters Turco's dreams of returning.


Turco, a fisherman from the Colombian Pacific Coast, yearns to return to the land he had to abandon three years ago due to armed conflict, along with his son Yosner. He lives in the city, trapped in a profound feeling of rootlessness, while his son seeks a possible future there. The father's illusion of returning is shattered by the death of his son. Turco is confronted by the pain and powerlessness of his son's corpse, which has now become one more obstacle to his return to the land. While traditional funeral rites are held, Turco wanders away and ambulates through the city to grieve privately. However, time passes, and he must find a place to bury his son.


"It escapes any convention. To refer to it in exclusively cinematographic terms is to reduce the profound poetic and aesthetic dimension to conventional and vulgar terms, which its filmmakers clearly challenge.” - Rodrigo Trojillos, CineUropa
