A meditation on love and language

Grand Jury Prize nominee & Audience Award winner at the Sundance Film Festival (World Cinema - Dramatic category)

An indigenous language is in peril as its last two native speakers (Evaristo and Isauro) had a quarrel in the past and haven't spoken to each other in over 50 years. Martín, a young linguist, undertakes the challenge to bring the two old friends back together and convince them to talk again in order for him to to obtain a record of the language. However, hidden in the past, in the heart of the jungle, lies a secret concealed by the language that makes it difficult to believe that the heart of Zikril will beat once again.
