In the hills of Costa Rica, Doña Carmen struggles to pass on her tribe's traditional ways of life. She must soon marry off her only granddaughter, and 70 year-old shaman Don Claudio lays his claim to the girl, who is only 12 and already pregnant by his hand. But when the girl befriends the son of a visiting anthropologist it forces a collision between the modern world and the ancient one.
