Poland / 2012 / 44'
A village in the Sierra Madre is inhabited by the last representatives of an ancient Mixteco culture. Deprived of their identity by modern civilization, they are facing an even bigger threat: a landslide that may destroy the village during torrential rains. The local leader tries to prevent the disaster. He wants to invite a geologist to the village, so that the approaching danger could be officially confirmed. But no help is coming and the inhabitants may just humbly wait for the disaster to happen.
