Parable of the Return

(Parábola del Retorno)

Wilson left home in Medellin (Colombia) on his way to Bogota but never arrived at his destination. Thirty years later, after peace agreements with the FARC have drastically altered his home country, he returns from exile in London to meet his family who believed him dead. Wilson’s plane journey shapes a parable inspired by a poem by (Columbian writer) Porfirio Barba Jacob.
