Summary: "The brilliant debut by Guatemalan filmmaker Jayro Bustamante is a mesmerizing fusion of fact and fable, a dreamlike depiction of the daily lives of Kaqchikel speaking Mayans on a coffee plantation at the base of an active volcano. Immersing viewers in its characters' customs and beliefs, the film chronicles with unblinking realism, a disappearing tradition and a disappearing people."--Container.
