Late in life, Ignacio sets out on a journey to return an accordion to its proper owner vowing never to play it again. Along the way, Ignacio begrudgingly accepts the company of a young dreamer named Fermín. Together they discover new ways of survival and the uniqueness of Colombian culture. Ignacio eventually tries to dissuade Fermín from becoming a traveling musician, as it will only lead to a life of sadness and solitude. However, Ignacio will have to face the fact that perhaps destiny has different plans for him and his pupil. Beautifully composed, with breathtaking cinematography capturing the beauty and diversity within Colombia, this film has won awards including the 2009 Award of the City of Rome (Festival de Cannes).
