Story

A story about a caretaker of a distant mining town – Cerro Gordo, who devotes his life to preserving this place and its history. He chose the loneliness and peacefulness of the remote location that is difficult to reach. Robert Desmarais maintains the traditions and doesn’t let the history forget how people extracted silver across 19th and 20th century. A picturesque view of Sierra Nevada and unsolved mysteries are elements that create the history of Cerro Gordo – town, which helped to build Los Angeles through trade and mining.
