SYNOPSIS

Mary has just finished her semester at college. It’s time to go back home and help her mother with the household chores, but a seemingly insignificant incident sparks her curiosity as to her native Nasa culture, so she goes to visit an elder, who manages to assuage some of her doubts. Mary belongs to a generation of young indigenous people who have come to understand that their roots are part of who they are and that respecting them is the only way to be true to themselves.
