What you need to know before your trail

A father walks the streets of Santiago with his two daughters in tow. Jobless, ashamed, and blind to his older child’s adoration, he unwittingly leads them to the scene of the greatest humiliation of his life.

A woman catches the eye of a young man outside a library. The pair exchange a cigarette and a few brief words, but what should have been nothing more than a brief flirtation soon takes a darker turn.

Throughout the nine tales that make up this astounding debut, Paulina Flores narrates with astonishing clarity the moment in which her characters stumble from an age of innocence to the harsh reality of disillusionment.
