La Paz is a chaotic city that stretches out like a sea of bricks, stone and mortar. Elder, a young miner from Huanuni, goes to the Bolivian capital in search of a job and to manifest alongside his colleagues in order to get it. He doesn’t know anybody there and is struck by a rare disease that makes him weaker and weaker. A woman takes care of him and convinces homeless man Max to use his powers to heal Elder. A movie that gives voice to the life of those considered to be invisible.
