The film asks where all the disaster and despair come from. A prisoner, Manuel escapes from prison when an earthquake hit. He searches for his wife and daughter but can’t find their whereabouts. When he finds his mother’s corpse, he groans in anguish. While wandering around demolished streets and buildings, he encounters a caged tiger and feels sympathy. A few days later, he discovers the tiger’s corpse. Lellio, known for his film Gloria, showcases a moral drama. Though Manuel gains freedom from prison, the outside world is another prison. Inspired by the earthquake and Tsunami hit Chile in February 2010, the film looks for what a freed man can do. Vivid digital image and rough texture reveal the inner world of loss and pain.
