The life of a young urban indigenous man is shaken when he meets a mysterious girl who has just moved with her family to the village where the boy lives, on the side of a highway.

The two are instantly attached to each other. However, it doesn’t take long for the boy to discover that the young woman may be suffering from a rare and dangerous condition.

When the girl disappears, he teams up with an old shaman to try to find her and perhaps find a cure for her condition. Together, they end up entering a new world, which will take them from the depths of a forest to the heart of an industrial complex. That’s when they will see that the different layers of reality are much more connected than they could imagine.
