Curious about urban life outside of their rural Peruvian village, two teenage brothers of the Amazonian Shipibo Indians leave for Lima to chase their dreams.

Together, they'll have to make their own way and reconcile their desire for modernity with an ancestral knowledge that is soon to be theirs.
