Santo, a young man who has come with his family from the Jordão area to settle in the indigenous homeland of Praia do Carapanã, talks about his life.
In the first four scenes Santo shows different leaves that are used to prepare the traditional hallucinogenic drink consumed by Cashinahua men. After that, he sings and talks about the liana. Another scene gives a round view of Reginaldo's property and ends with a short explanation by Santo and his brother Adão who is preparing the liana drink.
This is the story of the hallucinogenic liana. During story-telling, Santo hardly makes any gestures.
