Carmen and Sergio are ordinary parents juggling the pressures of family and work. Living in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru, their business is based around the local ayahuasca ceremonies. Concerned about their family’s compulsive use of modern technologies, they take their three kids on a campervan road trip deep into the Amazon rainforest. Borja Alcalde’s debut feature documentary is a visually intoxicating emotional journey to the heart of what holds a family together or breaks them apart.
