1985, Mexico. The event that marked and united an entire generation. We are facing a national emergency. The ground is still shaking. Doors and windows flapping, smoke, explosions, panic and chaos. Civilians and rescuers looking for survivors under the collapsed buildings. There’s no time left. Your help is needed. Did you hear that? Voices coming from under the debris! Quick a shovel! We need someone that can fit through the gaps! Mariana Lafón brings a true story to life using Mexican traditional dance, music, puppetry and ruthless humor. A heart-breaking but hopeful journey that will make time return in order to keep the past alive and honor the lives that were lost.
