Synopsis

Manuel is in prison in southern Chile, which collapses after a violent earthquake. He escapes in the middle of the catastrophe and returns to his home, only to discover that the ensuing tsunami has swept away his wife and his daughter. As he advances through landscapes of utter destruction, the fugitive digs deeper and deeper into his own devastated life. This paradoxical freedom shall lead him to face the cruelty of nature and experience the limits of his own humanity.
