In a desert by the sea, an ancient culture endures toxic modernity. A grandmother and her granddaughter intertwine in estrangement over memory. The myth sheds controversy; time falls in dreams of sand, old songs and rock music. First full-length feature drama to be ever produced in Cmiique Iitom (Seri language).
The film received an award of recognition at Ethno Kino (2022) and received the prize for the Best Original Screenplay at aluCine Latin Film + Media Arts Festival (2022).
