La sirga




Don Oscar!


I broughta girl

who asked to see you.

I found her along the way.

She's not well.

What do you want?

The boatman said

you were looking for me.

Don Oscar...

I'm Alicia,

your niece.

Dilia and Evelio's daughter.

I haven't heard from my brother in ages.

What happened?

They burned Siberia.

And Dilia?

She was in the house.

They burned everything.

Who did this?

I don't know.

What color were their armbands?

I don't know.

May the mountain swallow them!

Times are tough here.

The price of coal went down.

and Freddy left.

Who's Freddy?

My son, your cousin.

You were too young to remember him.

Can I stay?

For a few days...


In the kitchen, there's coffee,

corn cake and bread. Go eat.

This is Freddy's room.

I'm going to the harbor.

If you need anything

whatsoever, ask Flora.



Do Flora?


My uncle told me to ask you.

For what?

For anything whatsoever.

Are you going to work here?

Then go clean these tubers,

peel the beans

and wash the potatoes.

Someone to see you.


Yes, go on.



How are you?

I'm the one who brought you here.

I came to pick you up to take you.

Take me where?

To take you where?

This, I do not know.

No, I'm going to stay here

for a few days.

Okay. If you need anything whatsoever.

or need to go anywhere,

tell Don Oscar to call me.

My name is Gabriel.

Well, see you soon.

What about Oscar?

I was told he wanted to the harbor.

Are you related by your mother

or your father?

My father.

Make some soup.

Oscar doesn't like broth.

Make it thick.

There are onions

in the vegetable garden.

You'll find everything there.

See you tomorrow.

Alfredo, you must be careful,

this is excellent material.

Yes, it's very good.

Don Parmides

gave us 20 planks

to thank us

for our purchases.

They are in perfect shape.

We saved a lot of money.

The next is excellent quality.

There is a lot of work to do.

We'll need help.

But the young are lazy.

That's true, they don't like to work.

What about your son?

I don't know.

I remember when he helped build

Don Benicio's house.

He slaved away on the site

for three months

without asking for a cent.

Where is your son?

Did the mountain swallow him?

Like the day he was

supposed to work in a store

and ended up in a coca field.

What happened?


What were you doing?

I was hanging this up.

Let me help you.

How are you doing?

It's nothing.

The day I found you,

you were pretty bad off.

I wasn't doing well

when I first came here, either.

You're not from here?

What do you do?

I transport merchandise

equipment, coal, wood...

Sometimes, I take people

to hamlets in the region.

- Hello.

- How are you?


It's nice to see you.

I don't know.

Well, I have to go.

Take care of yourself.

See you soon, Flora.

Good-bye, Mirichis.

What happened?

I fell.

Now you know La Sirga.

We have to fix these boards

and balustrades.

The roof is damaged, too.

Take this piece.

Rub it well. Like so.


I'm cleaning the windows

before putting the curtains up.

I replaced

all the rotten boards outside.

How did you hammer in the nails?

With a rock.

She's using it.

And she bring it home at night.

What about these corn cakes?

They're a gift from Mirichis.

Come look at this.


how it looks.

Stop snooping around.

You have no reason

to be in Freddy's room.

You're nosy.

It's going to rain tonight.

Go get the ladder.


- That's good, right there.

- Here?

Hand me the corner of the tarp.

This won't be enough

to cover the whole roof.
