Origin of Heaven.

Luis, a family man, and Miguel, his older son, are labourers at a sawmill in the mountains in southern Chile. Solitude and sadness drive Miguel to migrate to the city and start over. Due to the instability in his work and his monotonous existence, Luis will try to change his life: but destiny will want something different.
