Father is teaching fourteen-year-old Segundo the folk art of story-box making. The boy's world has been similar to the colourful retablos until now – interwoven with faith and constricted by the traditional society that allows no deviation. But a single moment fundamentally changes Segundo's view on everything he's loved and believed in. This confident debut with stunning visual compositions won awards at many major film festivals.
