A typical day of ShomoÌƒtsi, an Ashaninka Indian living on the border between Brazil and Peru. Valdete, the village film-maker, tells about his uncle's everyday life, set between tradition and modernity. From the myth of cocaine's birth, which justifies its use, to the distorted use the gringos made of it. The flute sound of the natives alternates with modern music, played by a tape-recorder. The monthly visit to town for the retirement cheque, insecurity and prejudice in the white's world, the desire to go back home.
