[User contributed description]The film follows my father-in-law, Roberto (67), who spent his life working the fields of Ventura County. As a boy, he survived poverty and a brutal stepfather. This film follows him for one day as he tours the fields where he used to work and recounts the lesson his late mother taught him — that everything in life is temporary.

It is called Field Song (Canción del Campo).
