A tour of the corners of Chile through the observation of transport stops and the conversations of its passengers. Desert, city, sea and snow are the settings for this mosaic of everyday situations where humor, drama and the absurd are combined. A social portrait that shows a diverse and unequal territory, which reveals the desires and fractures of a country tired of waiting.
