El peor lugar del mundo (The Worst Place on Earth)
In Venezuela there are hundreds and even thousands of childhood cancer patients who are forced to move to Caracas, the capital, in order to obtain medical attention. Many of them make a titanic effort to overcome the difficulties that this implies. One of them is Geremy. Every week, Geremy must travel to Caracas to complete his chemotherapy treatment. Leaving his town has become a nightmare and, perhaps for this reason, he considers Caracas as "The worst place on Earth." However, Geremy does not hate Caracas. He simply despises so much injustice, the heavy and tortuous journey and being in a place that does not belong to him in order to survive.
