It started out as a mundane weekday morning for Francisco and Angel. They were scurrying around the house, getting ready for their jobs as medical residents at the General Hospital, when suddenly the floor of their home began to shake violently. The subsequent earthquake wreaked havoc on their lives, changing them forever. Under the Rubble shows us how tenuous and fragile our existence can seem in the wake of a natural disaster. In Spanish.
