Cebaldo, an indigenous Dule from Panama, is a fishermen's assistant in a town in northern Portugal and suffers of nostalgia. In his loneliness, memories take him away from his daily routine, immersing in a journey back to his village in Guna Yala, where a botanical doctor confronts him with the impossibility of returning to the past.
