As economic and social conditions become dire, a wave of suicides among young people disrupts life in a small Mexican town. Most affected by the tragedy, the Bolaños family and the town residents perform ceremonies and daily rituals to recapture the past. El Lugar de la Memoria presents a reflection on the reconfiguration of rural life in México.
