Storyline

A millenary language agonizes: Its last two speakers, Evaristo and Isauro (70's) had a quarrel 50 years ago and haven't spoken to each other since. Martin, a linguist, will undertake the challenge of bringing the two old friends back together and convince them to talk again in order for him to be able to obtain a record of the language. Yet, hidden in the past, in the core of the jungle, lies a secret hidden in the language that makes it difficult to believe that the heart of Zikril will beat again.

A beautiful story about loss and finding your way back
29 December 2018 | by andic2000See all my reviews

I loved it - very subtle movie, amazing DOP. Even though this is a fantasy, the plot is very plausible and touching. I highly recommend it.
