forgiving you.

God is wise.

That's why he took her

from you.

God bless you.

Go, Elias. You have

no one in San Isidro.

You're not my son...

...nor anyone's family

in this town.

The guns are in the field.

What for? There isn't

anyone left to fight.


If you stay, they'll kill you.

Wait here.

Forgive me, God.

What do you want

from me?

Why did you leave me here?

What's going on?

I want to do the right thing.

Please, God.

Help me.

Having escaped death,

Elias called God...

...who enlightened him

with a sign and said:

"You are alive

to pay your faults.

Your children will pay

the punishment. "

Lord, give us a chance

to compensate our wrongs...

...and obtain

your forgiveness.

We're leaving.

Hop on, quickly.

Help your brothers.

What do we do?

It's a boy?

He'll be Aureliano,

like his brother.

When I was born,

my mother...

...Maria Dolores Hernandez

died in childbirth.

I'm the last

of eight children.

I was named after

my brother, who died.

Thank you, God,

for letting me live.

Preserve my health,

which isn't well.

January, 1934.



See the desert, Aureliano?

No, I can't see.

We had two carts pulled

by mules and horses.

Listen to the steps.

The carts' noise.

Can you hear?

See the animals?

Yes, I see.

Where were you, Father?

In front,

on the first cart.

We carried the bell there.

Did you pray?

A lot. The mules barely

held their weight.

Where was I?

I already told you that.

You were in the back

of the second cart... a glass crib

so you wouldn't eat dirt.

Micaela was sitting

beside you.

Where was mom?



I saw it all, Dad.

I saw Marcos.

I saw the bell.

There were horses.

Go on. Start painting

before you forget.

You'll show me later.

This one is done.

You'll break the glass,
