Chile, October 2010. 33 miners are rescued after more then 2 months of being trapped in the collapsed San José mine and thousands of journalists have had a big reality show. What is behind the great stories of hope and the promise of the chilean politicians? We were allowed to learn about how it feels to work down in the earth and to live a minero-life. To be minero means among other things to work hard, to carry minerals and stones, to breath conterminated air every day. But, as the story of the social and political development of the country, this is what shapes you. This is your tradition and what you are proud of. “You are late, the miners are out” is a film about men, their work, great sobriety and companionship.
