In the city of Bogotá, in the neighborhood of La Nueva Gloria, live two Josés. One is a boy who dreams of Saturdays, the day when he and other children from the neighborhood visit Paradise, the library. The other José is a garbage collector. From dusk to dawn, he scans the sidewalks of the streets where he drives, squinting under the dim light in search of hidden treasures... Books! Some in neat piles, as if waiting for Joseph to discover them. Others require more effort to find. Ever since he discovered the first book, Ana Karenina, José has been rescuing books from the trash: thick, thin, used and almost new books, to expand the library he has in his home. And on Saturdays, children like little José run until they reach Paradise and discover a world full of books and magic.
