In "Colección de tragedias y una mujer", a young philosophy professor receives a death threat from the boyfriend of Yeraldín, a student he unfortunately slept with. He must leave his native Medellín, and go into exile in New York. Nostalgic, lost, and jaded, he seems to have no choice but to frankly review his life. His recount becomes a critical dissection of what has conditioned him: Colombian society, the academy, the army, his readings of philosophy, Western, amorous conventions, and more.
