The ocean conceals the history of the whole of mankind. The sea contains the voices of the Earth and those from the external space. Water receives impulses from the stars and transmits them to living creatures. In Chile, water has also kept the secret of two mysterious buttons found at the bottom of the ocean. With its 2,679 miles of coast, Chile is the largest archipelago in the world and has a supernatural landscape. It contains mountains, volcanoes and glaciers, conserving the voices of the indigenous peoples of Patagonia, the first British sailors and political prisoners.
