The legend, the details and the lie surrounding the Bolivian city that went to war over water.

A mother who lost a son, an Army General who was ordered to send his troops against his own hometown, a homeless man who became a hero and a single father who harvests flowers help shape the triumph of the Cochabamba water war.

But the passage of time and the complexity of reality transformed this story into a painful process of tragedy and deception. In an attempt to become part of this people's movement, a young filmmaker has no choice but to abandon what he believes in. What remains is an exploration of the lost relationship between man and water, which then becomes the lost relationship of man with himself.
