Everybody had high expectations on Roberto, and he fulfilled them. The father of the cortical migration theory was on the cutting edge of research on human memory even before he was thirty. After eight years working in France, he comes back to Santiago to teach in his old school for a semester. As he stumbles upon his past, the very theory that gave Roberto a name allows him to discover how little he has to pride himself of.
