Synopsis

In my childhood, they called me Walacha. I grew up in Chumbivilcas, a sexist, classist, and racist society governed by landowners. I learned to survive despite the changes that were taking place in my country. I sought to study at university, and I had to face the world. What can I achieve by showing myself in an autobiographical documentary film?
