Q&A with director Ernesto Daranas after the film

Log line: “The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts” (C.S. LEWIS)

Chala is eleven years old and lives alone with his drug addict mother. He trains fighting dogs for a living, and this world of violence sometimes surfaces when he is at school. Carmela is his sixth grade teacher, for whom the boy feels affection and respect. One day she becomes ill and must leave the classroom for several months. The relationship between the veteran teacher and the boy grows stronger, but this mutual commitment will jeopardize their futures at the school.

Chala tiene once años, vive solo con su madre adicta y entrena perros de pelea para buscar un sustento económico. Este entorno de violencia, a veces, sale a relucir en la escuela. Carmela es su maestra de sexto grado y el muchacho siente un gran respeto por ella. La relación entre la veterana maestra y el niño se hace cada vez más fuerte, pero este compromiso pondrá en riesgo la permanencia de ambos en la escuela.
