Synopsis:

Five stories about dignity in the capital of Peru: A local leader looking for someone to take over and carry on her complex work; a tourist guide who specializes in architectural heritage and Creole music; an ex-con rescued by the evangelical church; a teenaged dancer of Afro-Peruvian music who is forced to emigrate; and a fine arts muralist, the son of Andean migrants, all trying to get ahead in Barrios Altos, the most feared ─ but also most loved ─ historic neighbourhood of Lima.
