Chinu , Colombia . The only son of Mrs. Inés was killed by a vengeance.Six years after his death , at home still feels the smell of sadness and loneliness.In this poor village where the sun mercilessly burned our bodies , the desolate home of Inés keeps a pool table abandoned in the dust and grime.Her son went along with the joy and memories of a house full of smiles. Today we can read in one of the walls the word 'Esperanza : hope', but sometimes Mrs. Inés eyes seems to sink in pain.Nobody plays pool at the house , but the table still stands, like this woman in the midst of darkness ... under the sunlight.
