Genaro lives in the countryside at the north coast of Colombia, and he was instructed to deliver, to the mothers and wives of members of the paramilitary, their corpses in wooden boxes with an envelope filled with money. Genaro does not feel the pain of death, he just delivers the boxes and walks away; without sorrow for people. His routine assignment left him without a heart, and he only cares about one thing: to find among the corpses one in particular. He will only rest until he finds it.

A portrait of San Basilio de Palenque, first town in the Americas to have broken free from European domination, Palenque is an ode to a place that has been essential to Colombian culture and to its collective memory. Here, the real and the mythical are often indiscernible, highlighting how Colombia is coming to terms with its deep historical trauma.

“The price of freedom is loneliness.” Guillo.

Guillo escaped a comfortable city life and went to Capurgana, a remote Colombian town on the back of the Darien Gap. 

Now he lives his old age at the Aguacate Bay. Farther away than before, lonelier, without electricity and far form the society, which he finds horrible. The simplicity of his life style makes us question our way of living and gives us a picture of what happiness can look like.
