On June 8, 2012 Christian Segura is preparing to attend his sister’s graduation. The ceremony is at 7pm, but upon arrival, there is a tragic scene. Manual L.G., a young 30-year-old man, has committed suicide by hanging himself on a branch of the ombu tree in the schoolyard. This true story is the starting point that leads the author to investigate the victim and his motives. Frustrated by a lack of answers, Segura addresses the issue in a more comprehensive manner that transforms the book into an essayistic fascination with suicide and the feelings of immeasurable pain, guilt, and loss.
