Synopsis

Suenos en cenizas. 12 de mayo de 1922, nace la abuela Aura en San Roque, un pueblo ultraconservador en el noroeste de Colombia, y muere el 6 de junio de 2012, despues de cumplir 90 anos, en una clinica en Medellin, la ciudad que albergo a miles de familias campesinas que huyeron de la violencia liberal- conservadora en la decada de los anos 50 del siglo pasado. La abuela Aura, un dia despues de una delicada cirugia, estaba completamente lucida y sonriente en la habitacion 325 de la clinica Las Americas. Ella cargaba con sus 90 anos, un cumulo de historias de violencia desde 1946: persecuciones, desplazamientos, guerrilla, narcotrafico y paramilitarismo. Entre abrazos, besos y lagrimas con su hijo Jesus -quien llego del exilio- la abuela empieza a recordar su pasado y cierra el dialogo con la frase: -Mijo, 'si cree que tengamos paz algun dia...?
