Synopsis:
 The filmmaker films t​wo “elders” in a rural village in Chiapas: Carmen lives cheaply, but in peace, on the plot that her husband paid for with his life fighting for a landless farmers’ movement. Juan, although a shaman, suffers from a hernia that his incantations cannot treat, and falls under the spell of charlatans who sell him nutritional supplements as medicine. This is ‘the modern jungle’ that appears before our unbelieving eyes.
