Eliezer Arias is a Venezuelan film maker and anthropologist who obtained his PhD degree from the University of Bath in England. His first film "Our History is on Out Land" received numerous awards.
In the Venezuelan Andes, in neighbouring agricultural communities, live Marcelina and Mercedes, who share the same tragic faith: their daughters committed suicide, as many others living in this region. Through their memories, the film shows us idyllic, but at the same time violent place where silence prevails.
