As the tide comes in and out, Maria de los Esteros’ life goes by, taking shells from the roots of the mangrove swamp. Touching the mud, looking for shells, unearthing memories, songs and ghosts. A territory where present and past are mixed, and from which today, as yesterday, Maria refuses to leave.
