In a constellation of visited places and stories collected during travels and talks with others, this video is a collage assembled in New Mexico during the months of July and August in 2018. A father-son relationship that serves as a gateway to enter multiple dimensions that range from the magic of plants to the capacity of dreaming, from medicine to superstition, from myths to their projection into human perception, these and other spheres are connected in this story that may seem just a fragment of a wider surreal universe.
