A director documents ancestral tales of the Amazon rainforest. Arriving in an Achuar community, a myth becomes reality before his eyes: a young man has disappeared in the jungle, carried away by a devil named Iwianch, the Natives tell him. Time passes without the boy reappearing, while the shaman still hopes to find him alive. A documentary that skilfully questions the way we think of reality.
