The Atacama Desert is one of the few places on the planet that receives virtually no rainfall, and therefore has no cloud cover, an ideal place for astronomical observatories. This film while looking into the heavens above also probes into secrets buried in Chile’s soil. This is the soil trodden by General Pinochet and the thousands of dissidents that disappeared during his reign.
