La Sirga

William Vega - 2012

Alicia is abandoned. War memories invade her mind like threatening thunder. Uprooted by the armed conflict, she tries to reshape her life in La Sirga, a decadent hostel on the shores of a great lake in the highlands of the Andes, which belongs to Oscar, the only family member alive, an old solitary hermit. There, on a swampy and murky beach, she will try to settle down until her fears and the threat of war menaces again.
