A group of Chilean children discover a larger reality and a different world through the cinema. Each Saturday, Alicia Vega transforms the chapel of Lo Hermida into a film screening room as she conducts a workshop for children under the auspices of the Catholic church. The hundred or so children involved had never seen a movie, and in the workshop they see and learn about the cinema and watch movies. Finally, each child designs his own film with drawings. For the first time in most of their lives, the children go to the movies.
