Synopsis

Isolated in the Andean mountain at more than 5,000 meters above sea level, Willka and Phaxsi, an old Aymara couple, are struggling day by day against age, bad weather and the passage of time. While waiting for the return of their only son, only the eternity of the peaks remains to them.

This is the story of Willka and Phaxsi, an elderly couple of more than eighty years of age living in a remote part of the Andes of Peru, more than five thousand meters high. They face the misery and the passing of time, praying to their gods so that they are only able to rescue them.

This is the first film to be made in Aymara language of Peruvian mountain areas.
