Writer Daniel Alarcon links the destiny of a Peruvian ghost town in the Andes with the transformation of the capital, Lima.
Exploring the theme of disappearance, Peruvian-American author Daniel Alarcon journeys deep into the Andes, to Corongo. Now known as the 'Padlocked Town', Corongo is a semi-deserted place which residents left as they searched for a more stable and prosperous future in the capital city.
Daniel follows their journey to Lima, finding out how Andean culture has transformed the identity of the sprawling city over the past 30 years. He also discovers how a major earthquake in 1970 followed by years of political violence has forced the disappearance of many similar Andean towns and villages.
