The search for the origin of the perfect photo, titled El Pavo Real del Mar, triggers a journey to one of the mythical land of the cultural history of the twentieth century, Macondo, the territory of Cien años de soledad, but also the land of birth of the photographers teacher Leo Matiz. A sentimental journey through their last steps, from the testimony of the few locals who knew him in life. Also a trip to the memories of his childhood.
