Desde que era chico, Neftalí escucha el llamado de una misteriosa voz. Aunque los niños vecinos se burlen y su autoritario padre lo ridiculice, e incluso aunque él mismo dude a veces, Neftalí sabe que no puede ignorar ese llamado. Escucha y sigue la voz por la fronda exuberante de la selva tropical hasta al mar imponente, a través de la persistente lluvia chilena en un viaje inspirador de autodescubrimiento que transformará su vida y, a la larga, también el mundo.From the time he is a young boy, Neftalí hears the call of a mysterious voice. Even when the neighborhood children taunt him, and when his harsh, authoritarian father ridicules him, and when he doubts himself, Neftalí knows he cannot ignore the call. He listens and follows as it leads him under the canopy of the lush rain forest, into the fearsome sea, and through the persistent Chilean rain on an inspiring voyage of self-discovery that will transform his life and, ultimately, the world.
