Dr. Fuentes is a man in search of his legacy: seven medical students he trained to work in impoverished indigenous towns.  But early in his odyssey, he begins to suspect that the "men with guns" got there first, and with every step he is confronted by bloody realities he had long ignored.  Now, his is an almost desperate quest, but for a mythical town deep in the rain - one last refuge of hope called cerca del cielo.

Starring:  Fedérico Luppi, Dan Rivera González, Damián Delgado, Mandy Patinkin, Damián Alcázar, and Tania Cruz.
