Growing up my parents did everything possible to provide for my siblings and I, including collecting cans and bottles. My mom called it "Botiando" and for a while it was an adventure that I looked forward to, pretending to be on an epic quest searching for buried treasure, but as I grew older slowly I realized we were going through garbage. Those trips lost their appeal and I became ashamed of my parents. It would take me many years to overcome those feelings and appreciate all the sacrifices my parents made. This short film is an exploration of that particular period in my youth. I hope you are able to take a little something away from it.
