In 1780, an African woman is forced into slavery and sold at auction. Don Manuel Aguirre, the sugarcane farmer who buys her becomes obessed and has no idea her ancestral destiny will disrupt his plantation. A group of slaves flee the sugar plantation and they are now seeking refuge. Action, mysticism and the struggle for identity join in this story with a feminine edge filled with magic and density of the forests.
