Twenty-two-year-old Ismael only thinks about traveling to the U.S. He grows up loved and cared for by his grandmother Mariana, a midwife and ancestral healer, after his parents emigrate from Ecuador. After Ismael agrees on a price with the coyote to be smuggled northward, his best friend Luz returns to Ecuador after eight years of living abroad. Luz’s perspective fills Ismael with doubts about his decision to immigrate. The two friends criss-cross the Andes by car, along the way they meet various characters and are exposed to stories and legends that will raise troubling questions for Ismael about his destiny.
