A day in the life of a typical peasant family from central Chile. The grandmother sells cheese on the road, the grandfather works in the field, the daughter is a cook in a hostal and the grandson goes to school. In four separate sections, we follow them in their little pains and joys, throughout a day that shows a shameless Chile that changes and that few know.
