Stumbling across a heartbreaking secret his father is harboring, 14-year-old Segundo will come to face the raw reality of his deeply conservative surroundings, as well as a more profound connection with his father than he’d ever imagined. Segundo sees silence as his only option for dealing with his father Noé’s secret. The 14-year-old lives with his parents in a village high up in the mountains of Peru. Noé is a respected artisan and Segundo’s role model. With loving eye for detail, he artfully crafts altarpieces for church and homes, and is preparing his son to follow in his footsteps. But cracks form in their tight bond.
