Where did they go?

To get wood.

There's a place

close to the stream...

...with a lot of trees,

like outside.

- Around here?

- No, here. Up.


There. Close to

the snake mountain.

When will you take me

with you?

You know I can't.

Let's eat.

Thank you, Lord,

for this holy meal...

...that you've given us.

I hear you, God.

I achieve what you see.

I abide your mandate.

I follow all your laws.


Give her to me!

Reach her!



I want new leaves.

Leave them there.

If I ask for something,

will God grant it?

Only if you have

a lot of faith.

How does God know?

How does He know what?

That I have faith.

Come here.

See that outside?

Do you see the church?

The church is a gift

for God.

Everyday we build

another piece...

...and everyday we show

a bit more of our faith.

When it's done,

we'll call God with the bell.

He'll show us the light

and say we're forgiven.

Is God very mad?

To bed. Come on.

Micaela, let me brush

your hair!



What do you want?

A favor.

If I do this favor,

can I touch you?


Okay! You can!

- What is it?

- A gift.

Place it in the church.

Not your hand.

I touched it.

I want your face.

If I touch Aureliano

he doesn't die, you know?

I'll talk to you later!

Give me health,

Holy Father... go outside and play

in the tree with my brothers.

Come, son.

Get inside the trunk.

I'm sleepy.

Come on. Don't you want

to climb the tree?

We're getting out

of your room.

We're in the hall.

The kitchen still smells

of tortillas.

We're outside.

The sun is high.

Can you feel the heat?

We're heading

towards the tree.

I can see Bartolome

and Micaela from here.

They've climbed it.

What's wrong?

I want to go out for real.

First you have
