Spanish director, Sebastian, his executive producer, Costa, and all his crew are in Bolivia, to shoot a film about Christopher Columbus and his first explorations, but mainly, to show the way the Spaniards treated the Indians at that time. Things go more or less smoothly until a conflict erupts over the privatization of the water supply. A protest movement is led by one of the local actors. The aborigines´ presentday struggle for drinking water brings to life again the bitter history of the past which Sebastian tries to capture in his film. The main character of Sebastian is played by the contemporary Latin American star, Gael García Bernal.
