Logline

A sensitive and beautifully told story about indigenous life in the Andes with an enchanting lead actress.

The Island of the Sun in the middle of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia is a place that’s as mystical as it is picturesque. Lucía’s family lives there with their beloved alpaca, Panchito. After school, the girl and her father weave totora reeds into figurines that her mother sells to the numerous tourists. When her father leaves the island one morning for the capital city of La Paz, Lucía finds it difficult to cope with his absence. But the rhythm of life on the island and the passage of time cause her to rethink things. She realizes that she must choose her own destiny and that her father is no longer the person she longed to have back.
