My Daughter Shamporo (Noshinto Shamporo)

Elías, the leader of an Asháninka tribe in the central rainforests of Peru, decides to return to his birthplace in search of a medicine woman who will teach his daughter Shamporo all about plants and ceremonial rites.

The journey takes them a great distance along the Ene river as they struggle to track down María, renowned as the best medicine woman of the region. For the first time in her life, Shamporo discovers the stunning scenery of the beautiful river, travelling by boat, plane and car and eventually passing through the city.

Finally, they meet up with María, and the conversation begins.
