Ana and Fernando have promised to take their two children, Lucia and Manuel, to show them the beaches of northern Chile. On the way in the back of the car, time is whiled away in playful naivety. In the front of the car tensions surface, Fernando preoccupied with his own venture to visit the land left to him by his father, whilst all the time Ana is searching for an unknown destination of her own where their issues dissolve. The forced intimacy of the car’s interior set against vast and arid Chilean landscapes reiterates and magnifies the claustrophobic isolation within this poignant tale of innocence and loss.
