In Guatemala, between 1960 and 1966, more than 200.000 people were killed in systematic oppression and massacres, in parts where Mayas were the majority. Photographer Miquel Dewever-Plana brings together exhuming processes and his testimonies in a book namesake as the film. Years after, Mayas come back for this book which tells their own story.
