Three young adults : Iquela, Paloma and Felipe begin a search. They are searching in Chile for Paloma's mother's dead body but they are also searching to 'find themselves'. This journey of self discovery is there but it is hidden amongst the prose and grandeur of the text. Trying to find the story was a bit like a bird trying to find the worm in the soil. You know it's there and when you find it, it's going to be interesting and juicy!
