Subtitles 

In the middle of the Peruvian highlands, two children are sitting on a grave. A woman knits and another cooks. An agricultural engineer dances while dreaming of hybridizing avocados with oranges. A rodent takes a nap in a backpack and a public employee renames the streets of the city. Everyone recites César Vallejo: his verses -dark, truculent, combative- inhabit with unforeseen force these encounters between the filmmaker and the inhabitants of the town where the poet was born. As soft and warm as they are precise. The film manages to interrogate with subtlety and emotion the tensions between oral and written tradition, avantgarde literature and popular culture.
