Karamakate, a powerful Amazonian shaman, the last survivor of his people, lives isolated in the depths of the jungle. Decades of loneliness have made him a chullachaqui, a human without memories and emotions. His life was disrupted by the arrival of Evans, an American ethnobotanist in search of the yakruna, a very powerful sacred plant with the virtue of learning to dream. Together they undertake a journey to the heart of the Amazonian forest, where past, present and future merge, and which will allow Karamakate to gradually recover its lost memories.
