          Dos veces a la semana por más de medio siglo, Baltazar Ushca ha subido por las laderas del Chimborazo, la montaña más alta en Ecuador, para cosechar el hielo de los glaciares naturales. Incluso sus hermanos, Gregorio y Juan, ambos criados como hieleros, se han retirado de la montaña para encontrar un trabajo más estable. Esta es una historia del cambio cultural y estilo de la vida indígena a través de la perspectiva de tres hermanos, quienes han experimentado con el cambio cultural.

                For over 50 years Baltazar Ushca has harvested the glacial ice of Ecuador’s Mount Chimborazo. His brothers, both raised as ice merchants, have long since retired from the mountain. This is a story of cultural change and how three brothers have adapted to it.
