Matilde lives in Cabildo, a small village in the Peruvian desert, along with her big family. Different generations gather daily in a house that sparks joy. She has lived there all her life, raising pigs. But until now, she had never been able to videocall her daughter Elena, who does not live in Cabildo. Being able to see her is comforting, because she can see with her own eyes that her daughter is fine.

Don Raúl, a resident of the Changuillo district in Nazca, is one of the few poets that writes ten – line stanzas, a kind of poetry with a very peculiar metric. He gets inspired, writes, and recites. His work talks about current affairs and public personalities. Raúl likes his town, its weather, the river, the sea, and the tranquility of the place. But he also enjoys being able to call his friends that live faraway.
