Y de Pronto el Amanceer (And Suddenly the Dawn)

After 40 years, Pancho returns to his hometown of Chilean Patagonia, where century-old trees rise above abandoned tombs and the sea, drunk with rain, conceals the roots of men. He draws inspiration from his past for an article that he is writing. He recalls his childhood, the love of his life and the reason he had to flee the town.
