Synopsis: Hidden in the hills of Southern Costa Rica, the Ngäbe indigenous community is blowing on the last flames of an ancient civilization.

For Doña Carmen, the fight to pass on traditional ways of life will take a threatening turn when she walks young Esmeralda to her first-blood ritual…

...as Don Claudio, the respected elder, sets for a final mission to protect his tribe.

Dangerous times for American youngster Feb to settle in the community with his candid anthropologist mother…

For what first looked like a colorful vacation will plunge him at the center of a dark ceremony… A ceremony that will leave Carmen in tears as she watches the nightmare of her own life unfolding once again. A ceremony that will bring its victim to the Police and the culprit to Heaven.

But was it a hideous crime or a noble battle for survival?


Logline: Esmeralda, 12 years old, pregnant, pawn or princess of the struggle for survival of her people?
