Audio Tracks 

Pedro is a farmer who defends his identity and his dreams; his sister Esther strives for a better future for her daughter as she shares her world through the lens of her small camera. They live in El Remolino, a tiny riverside community in Chiapas, Mexico, which is affected by strong floods every year. To them, life is like a Swirl that spins them across the journey of their internal cycles and of the greater natural cycle of the river.
