Raised without a father and living in virtual poverty with their mother on the slopes of the mine, the boys must work to afford the clothing and supplies vital to their education. Basilio believes only the mountain devil's generosity will allow them to earn enough money to continue the new school year. Without an education, the brothers have no chance to escape their destiny in the silver mines. An inspiring story and stunningly shot, The Devil's Miner has been a hit at recent festivals.
