Mexico/Canada/Netherlands, Drama/Documentary/Fiction Hybrid, 2010

Upon the sudden departure of her husband, Teresa embarks on a mission to find out what happened. Instead of finding answers, her mission uncovers the feelings and desires of a whole town, a town where its people have grown up with bitterness towards others. Family members desert each other, soldiers intimidate residents, stories of mysterious deaths are frequent, and the sense of abandonment hidden in everyone is constantly present. Blending fiction and documentary, Verano de Goliat depicts the feelings of the town's residents by showing moments from their daily lives.
