The exploration of a river and the people fighting for its protection. For the Mapuche people, rivers are sacred. Water is not only what sustains life: it is life itself. A group of young environmentalists embark on a kayak expedition from the mountains to the sea through the watershed of the San Pedro (Wazalafken) River. A journey through the heart of Mapuche territory, where stories told by the local inhabitants of the basin unveil the profound spiritual value of water and call upon all of us to understand and protect our wild rivers.
