A sensitive film about an Indigenous girl living at Lake Titicaca, featuring a charismatic actress gorgeously photographed in front of breathtaking scenery.

Countless legends surround Island of the Sun in Bolivia’s Lake Titicaca. Lucia lives there with her family and the alpaca Panchito. When one day her father leaves the island to earn money for the family, everything changes for Lucia. The longing for him won’t leave her. At the same time, however, she grows older and changes. Against a breathtaking landscape backdrop, we follow her at school, with her friends, when she quarrels with her mother, and when she tries to con tourists out of a little money. When her father finally returns, his role for Lucia has changed and a new longing awakens in her.
