The Burial of Georgio Sánchez


The actions of the inhabitants of a small town, Pueblo del Pocito, on the night preceding a funeral mass are inextricably linked to those of the passengers on a bus due to arrive in the town the following morning.

The story explores the central themes of desire and deceit as the burial of a stranger, Georgio Sánchez, alters all their lives.

The chronologies of events, combined with the characters' recollections of past incidents, create a lyrical evocation of their passions, self-sacrifice, and necessary deceit...
