Edgardo Vega, after eighteen years of voluntary exile in Canada, returns to El Salvador to attend the funeral of his mother. The trip, "a spooky journey" is unbearable, his compatriots are repulsive and lead him into it a state of anxiety that will not leave until he leaves. He tells Moya, a former schoolmate, all of his feelings about the visiting. Vega finds El Salvador despicable, he attacks everything: church, education, politics and politicians, his own family... and throw up his criticisms to the point of identifying himself with Thomas Bernhard.
Edgardo Vega, tras dieciocho anos de exilio voluntario en Canada, se ve obligado a regresar a El Salvador para acudir al entierro de su madre. Ya el viaje, «una espeluznante travesia», se le hace insoportable, sus compatriotas le resultan repulsivos y provocan en el un estado de ansiedad que no le abandonara hasta que se marche. Todo esto se lo cuenta de manera torrencial a Moya, antiguo companero de colegio, con quien queda durante su estancia para tomar unas copas, y el cual reproducira posteriormente el salvaje monologo de Vega. El Salvador le resulta a Vega despreciable, arremete contra todo: Iglesia, educacion, politica y politicos, su propia familia..., y vomita sus criticas de forma categorica, hasta el punto de identificarse con Thomas Bernhard.
