    Documentary

    A tour across Chile's diverse scenarios through the observation of bus stops and their passenger's conversations. The desert, cities, ocean and snowy peaks are the settings for this mosaic of day-to-day situations where humor, drama, and absurdity are combined. A film that delves into the conflicts of a diverse and unequal country colliding with the desires of the newly arrived immigrants.
