A visual poem with overwhelming images of the Andean mountains about a spiritual master of the Andean tradition who emerges in different regions of the Cordilleras and disappears again, like a ghost who wants to take one last look at the sacred mountains, and he converses with the water, the rocks, the men, and finds out under what disease the human race of the present suffers.
