Lake Titicaca, 1984. Morgan Cabrera, a renowned La Paz engineer, drowns in a boating accident. The unfruitful search for his body is called off when confirmation arrives that it has been found on a remote island. A commission sets out to retrieve the corpse. When the engineers arrive on the island, the community members, who only speak Aymara, refuse to allow them to take the corpse because, according to their beliefs, doing so would ward off the possibility of a bountiful harvest. Finally, the community members allow them to take the corpse, but it never reaches its destination...
