The Tear

A Short Story

A fallen leader. A revolution at a turning point. A moment of weakness.

Set in the fictional Latin American country of Chipuelta during the late Seventies, The Tear tells the tale of a revolutionary leader at a crossroads, wanting to see the revolution he had fought for his whole life come to fruition and despairing what happens when it does.

The Tear is a quick punch to the gut that makes us ask the question: Even when we learn the lessons of history, are we still doomed to repeat them?
