Life and death, dream and reality, tradition and modernity... The struggle between opposites converges in a sensorial and poetic way on this journey that, together with Doris, a young Wayúu, presents us with a different concept of time and some of the most intimate and ancestral rituals of this indigenous community in La Guajira, in northern Colombia.
