In an Aymara community in the Peruvian southern Andes, an alpaquera family gathers to celebrate the ritual of “uywa ch´uwa”, an ancient custom that consists in evoking ritual acts to the “Pakucha” (the alpaca’ soul). During the celebration, the whole family is guided through the worldview of the Andean culture, and enters into a universe filled with mysticism, where the final destination is the genesis of a new life.
