Kiro Russo / Feature Narrative / Bolivia, France, Switzerland, Qatar / 2021 / 85 min / Original Language: Spanish / Interests: Drama, Social Issues


After a seven-day walk with his companions, young Elder arrives in the big city seeking to be reinstated in his work at the mine. The city is overwhelming, and Elder begins to feel sick. But quickly the drinks make him forget his pain and, together with his friends, he decides to stay and take a chance. Thanks to the old woman Mama Pancha, they get a job in the market. But Elder starts to get worse, choking and struggling for breath. His friends chip in to help him, but the doctor says there is no cure. Mama Pancha, very worried about the dying Elder, connects him to Max—a witch doctor, hermit, and clown—who will try to bring the young man back to life.
