Synopsis

For his 80th birthday, Crisóstomo asks his son Alfonso and grandchildren Santiago and José María to take him on a trip to his birthplace, the northern town of Huamachuco which he hasn’t visited in seven decades. The trip gives José María, a budding filmmaker, the perfect excuse to bring his camera along and shoot a documentary about his grandfather. There is more to this trip than Crisóstomo’s desire to share with his family where he came from, though.

Para su 80 cumpleaños, Crisóstomo le pide a su hijo Alfonso y a sus nietos Santiago y José María que lo lleven de viaje a su lugar de nacimiento, la ciudad norteña de Huamachuco, la cual no ha visitado en siete décadas. El viaje le da a José María, un cineasta en ciernes, la excusa perfecta para llevar su cámara y grabar un documental sobre su abuelo. Sin embargo, las razones de este viaje van más allá del deseo de Crisóstomo de compartir con su familia sus raíces.
