A drop of water originates on a glacier, in it´s way to the sea.

'Yakuaya' means the essence of water in a native language of Ecuador. The documentary follows the journey of a drop of water from a high glacier to the sea. On the way the water touches the lives of a peasant, is enclosed in the rhythm of a water bottling factory, passes through a city, transforms the life of a woman, awakens hope in a desert and welcomes the innocence of two children beside the sea. A stunningly original and beautiful film that turns water into a marvel.
