Forceful, moving and finely crafted, Atacama is the riveting story of two people of disparate backgrounds, but connected by their profound understanding of the other's emotional predicaments and by their commitment to social justice. It is a story of fortitude in the face of adversity, resistance, struggle and hope; art and the written word vis a vis activism; a story that may be set in the first half of the twentieth century but resonates in today's world with echoes of indisputable truths and historical deja vus.

When Tania, a thirty-six year old Vancouver artist receives a letter suggesting that her biological father may not be the man she has always known as such, her world turns upside down.
