English Translation

Knocking on the Gates of Heaven

Silvia has it all: a good family, a comfortable financial situation, a boyfriend who seems to love her even though he is stingy with his support, and parents who are ready to fulfill her every whim. She knows she is lucky, but from a very young age she is aware that not everyone is in the same situation as she is. She is studying medicine not because it is the family profession, but out of true vocation, and she has planned to spend the summer as a volunteer in a country completely different from her own: India. What leads a girl with a determined life to seek a different way of helping others? Understanding diversity by helping others? Understanding cultural diversity is, perhaps, a way of understanding oneself and defining what one wants to believe in. Does it make sense to strive to change the world to make it a more livable, more just, more humane place? India and the precepts of international volunteering will give Silvia the answers she is looking for.
