Once a member of the Native Mexican Wirrarika community, Chon talks about his cousin Faustino. He was the son of a shaman residing in the indigenous settlement of Las Moras, who in 1980 made himself god and killed the members of his community. Chon barely survived. Thus remains this paradoxical record of a gruesome past told over a beautiful black and white screen image of the village, its surroundings and Chon. (JO Ji-hoon)
