The Firm Trail.

After the death of Don Jerónimo de Mena y Villalpando, marquis of Altarriva, a veteran peasant woman from La Vega Alta access the diaries of her employer, a man who died maddened and without offspring. The woman relates the landlord’s obsession with the lynx Larus; the incessant search of the elusive feline through the immensity of the bush in order, according to the marquis, to ensure the stability of his lands. A series of manuscripts, photographs and children’s drawings will reveal another reality of the large estate and the territory of the great spotted cat.
