Paraguay, 1896. A three year-old girl is captured by settlers after they had massacred of a group of Aché indigenous people in the jungle. A hundred years later her remains are found in Argentina and Germany and returned to the Aché. The film tries to restore a history and a name to the small captive who died of tuberculosis in a mental institute at the age of 14.  The film won Best Film at the Society for Visual Anthropology’s 2015 Film and Media festival (SVAFMF) at the AAA in 2015.
