Filmskaperen Sebastian ankommer Bolivia for å lage en film om en av verdens største ikoner; Christopher Columbus. Sebastian har ambisjoner om å slå hull på myten om at Columbus sitt bidrag til å sivilisere Amerika skulle ha vært en god gjerning. Men i stedet blir han dratt inn i et politisk maktspill, hvor urbefolkningen i landsbyen hvor filmen spilles inn begynner å protestere mot privatiseringen av vannforsyningene. Denne gangen handler ikke striden om gull, men det viktigste av våre ressurser - vann. Filmen har karakteren 7,3/10 i IMdb
