Camilo is the adopted son of an Indigenous couple of the Quillasinga tribe. As the only Black man in his community, he has always felt different. He embarks on a spiritual journey in search of his origins. With newfound clarity, Camilo manages to accept his identity.

Camilo is the adopted son of an Indigenous couple of the Quillasinga tribe from the Cocha Lagoon in Colombia. He is the only Black person in his community, and he has always felt different. For years, he has wondered who his biological parents are. The Indigenous governor gives him ayahuasca, a sacred remedy for spiritual guidance. During this transcendent experience, Camilo has visions of his biological mother. Supported by his adoptive father, Camilo embarks on a journey to find his origins. With newfound clarity, Camilo finds his identity and understands himself as a son of two races.
