The shaman Karamakate, the only survivor of his aboriginal tribe, lived alone in the depth of the Amazon. A German ethnographer, severely ill, comes to him seeking for aid. Karamakate who despises westerners, turns him down once, but they set off in a canoe to look for the sacred plant ""yakruna"". Years later, Karamakate, lost of knowledge and emotion due to solitude, sets off on another journey with an American botanist. The 34-year-old Colombian director engraves the forgotten story of aborigines inspired by the journals of western explorers, the Amazon's ""memories"", to the screen. Free yourself to the two time-spans that intertwine like a jungle for a special visual experience.
