Crisostomo‘s eightieth birthday is coming up and his son Alfonso along with his grandsons Santiago and José Maria, take him on a trip to his hometown, Huamachuco, in the north of Peru, where he has not set foot since his youth. For El Abuelo (Grandpa) it is the occasion to show them the places where lived as a youngster and the people he left behind so he could give his family a better life. A moving story of a trip into the past with hints of humour.
