Synopsis : 

The way in which the territory is inhabited by the indigenous cultures of the Gran Chaco generates community movements close to the forest and the river, sources of life. The government is planning a new territorial order with popular houses and the displacement of Wichí families to the new urban periphery. 
Ana is the architect in charge of the project. Valentino is the chief of his community and with his grandson Leonel they will try to mediate what they consider to be a new cultural outrage.
