Cuca's cozy rural life is shattered when his father leaves for the city, prompting him to embark on a quest to reunite his family. The young boy's journey unfolds like a tapestry, the animation taking on greater complexity as his small world expands. Entering civilization, industrial landscapes are inhabited by animal-machines, with barrios of decoupage streets and shop windows and flashing neon advertisements that illuminate the night.

The story depicts a clash between village and city, hand crafted and mechanized, rich and poor. Throughout the tumult, the heart and soul of the people beats on as a song.

Sponsored by the Meg and John P. Brogan Endowment for Classic Cinema.
