The Tarahumara of Chihuahua, Mexico, are a people at the mercy of a landscape in transformation; standing on the brink of an encroaching reality, one in which the age-old fears of the inhabitants are being realized. A hamlet has survived, perched in a remote location where its children can grow up and the elderly can die and remain in place. Here is where the inhabitants of this little hamlet, deep in the heart of Mexico, rely on each other for survival. Resources are tough and challenging to obtain in such a remote location. Join the film makers as they capture the story of this place to discover how the inhabitants have survived in the face of resort development by newcomers and to give outsiders an insight into their world.
