On the banks of the Ucayali river, in the Peruvian rainforest, three generations of the same family struggle to survive through their hand-made production of coal. After an accident that burned her feet, the grandmother leaves the family, with the hope of dying somewhere else, far away from the coal. Left alone with her juvenile son, her daughter Nancy keeps trying to sell coal in spite of a terrible economy. Will she be able to hold her family together?
