Synopsis:
A girl was born and grew up in the deepest jungle of the Amazon, Candámo. She lives in an uncharted civilization that rests on the back of the most powerful Mother Spirit in the Amazon, Turtle Motelo Mama. One day she discovers that her homeland is being threatened and realizes that there are other humans in the world besides her people. As she fights to save her paradise against the greed and exploitation of children, logging, and illegal mining, she begins to struggle to reverse this destruction and impending evil of the Yacuruna, the darkness that lives in the Amazon. Overhanging a grove, Ainbo calls for Motelo Mama. The spirit of the Amazon emerges from the waterfall. The spirit tells her only Ainbo can save the village. Thereafter, she is guided by her animal spirits, Vaca and Dillo to save her land and save her people before it's too late.
