SYNOPSIS

The city of Lima is portrayed, through an immersion into different alternative music scenes, as a sound space, comprised by little memories that progressively and timelessly appear.

Around this portrait, the film is built as a collage of moments, sensations, characters’ portraits, sound landscapes, concerts, conversations and poetry.
Genres such as rock, punk, psychedelic rock, improvisation, noise and experimental electronic music are the ones that musicalize the situations that arise when this place becomes inhabited.
