Synopsis

Bolivar Jaripio, an Embera indigenous farmer, has premonitions of death through his dreams but he denies this ability to avoid the prejudices of being called a witch. Bolívar finds in his dreams the knowledge to build Dadjirade, the traditional house that was forgotten after the displacement of his community due to the construction of a hydroelectric plant 40 years ago.
