Karamakate was once a powerful Amazon shaman; He is the last survivor of his town and lives deep in the jungle. It has been years of total solitude, which have turned it into "chullachaqui", an empty shell of man, deprived of emotions and memories. But his lonely life turns upside down the day when Evan, an American ethnobotanist in search of the yakruna, a powerful hidden plant, capable of teaching to dream comes to his remote lair. Karamakate agrees to accompany Evan in his search and together they embark on a trip to the heart of the jungle in which the past, present and future are confused, and in which the shaman will recover his lost memories.
