Elder has walked for seven days to reach La Paz and demonstrate with his friends, minors who were fired from the Huanuni tin mines. It is not long before Elders becomes ill, slowly suffocated by the city. Max, a street sorcerer, restlessly roams each part of town, which seems so deeply rooted in his very being. Their meeting will seal their faith in the middle of the bustling, musical Bolivian capital.
The film is selected for the One+One award.
