A young photographer returns to his home town after it’s been destroyed by a volcano, searching for love and redemption.

27-year-old Cristóbal returns, camera in hand, to his native Chaitén, after it’s been destroyed by a volcanic eruption.

Searching for his childhood home, amidst the ruins, Cristóbal meets Ana, a strong-willed woman whose sick elderly mother, María, refuses to leave town in order to seek treatment.

The three form an unlikely bond and become the family that Cristóbal sought to recover with his photography.

“[Director] Brunet presents the story in three chapters from the point of view of each character, offering different subjective angles, changing tones, and varying emotional colors. Recommended.” – Video Librarian

“Brunet has an extraordinary sensitivity, a choice of style that does not sacrifice rigor.” —Fabrizio Tassi, Cineforum
