SYNOPSIS: Ignacio and Alejandra are a young couple who are shooting a documentary about the people who disappeared from an indigenous village during the Guatemalan Civil War. From among the families who are still searching for their loved ones, they meet Delfina and her son Juan. Delfina still hopes to find her husband, but Juan is fed up with the search. He knows who was responsible for the disappearance of his father: someone who still lives in the same village. Dust (Polvo) is a contemporary portrait of a Guatemalan society, fragmented and divided, that cannot yet free itself from the brutal legacy of war.
