Wilson left home in Medellin (Colombia) on his way to Bogota but he never arrived to his destination. Thirty years later after the peace agreements with the FARC, he returns from his exile in London to meet his family who believe him dead. The plane journey shapes a parable just like the title of the poem by Porfirio Barba Jacob.
