Segundo Paucar is a 14-year-old boy who wants to carry on his family’s legacy by becoming a master retablo (story-box) builder, just like his father. On his way to a community celebration in rural Peru, Segundo accidentally observes his father in a situation that shatters his world and everything he believes in. 101 minutes. Quechua with English subtitles. 

“Delgado Aparicio’s reflective direction with a patient eye for lived-in behavior and kinetic symbolism bears artistically ripe fruit in an affectingly measured, near-perfect tour de force that demands serious attention.” — Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times
