Songs and Chronicles of a Forgotten Neighbourhood is a straightforward and brutal portrait of Palosmás, a marginal neighbourhood in Northern Nicaragua. The hell where lives are enclosed, and their stories are hymns to the courage and human dignity. The film is an apology that, according to Borges, shows that for some people the heaven exists although his place is actually the hell.
