Tarata, a small town near Cochabamba, is deserted due to the large migration of its young population to the cities, especially since 2000. Those who remain in the town are elderly people living in decaying conditions. Tarata the documentary observes Tarata the town, exploring the connections between the older population and ideas about aging, abandonment and death, through the voice-over commentary of elder women who live there.
