A dying town. A family on the rocks. Can Ruben break the cycle of destruction before he loses it all?
Ruben and the entire town of Santa Rita, Argentina depend on the Frigorifico, a major factory and the town’s main source of work. When the factory closes down, Ruben must make a choice: hope for a reopening or start over somewhere else. After deciding to move, Ruben must do so without any of his family or loved ones.
As he makes a new life for himself in Buenos Aires, he watches the situation in Santa Rita deteriorate. The most disturbing part is that his brother, Frede, is immersed in the violence that continues to spread. And as a result, everyone Ruben loves has drifted into harm’s way. When tragedy strikes, despite his best efforts, Ruben must come to terms with the past, the present, and what will become of the future.
The Frigorifico is a work of literary fiction for the 99%. If you like powerful storytelling, real characters, and literature that peels back the curtain of today’s society, then you’ll love G.D. Leon’s chilling look back into a bygone era.
