The documentary recounts the story of the Mapuche people, an indigenous community of the south of Chile; a story of their struggle to reclaim their land and the consequences of the policies of repression applied by the Chilean State. With this setting of conflict, and the murder of Alex Lemun, a young Mapuche, the filmmaker Elena Varela embarks on an investigational journey with one purpose: to tell the story of the last 10 years of struggle of the Mapuche community. The police detain Elena and they confiscate her film material. The filmmaker, now living the political persecution in her own skin, narrates the story from her experience.
