Carlos Águila Tellez is an apprentice shaman. He visits the coast of the State of Oaxaca in Mexico to perform the winter solstice rite. For this he travels to the mountains, to meet the old Zapotec masters, who harvest the “holy children” mushroom every year. Famous all over the world for being hallucinogenic, the Zapotecs protect them. For them, they are sacred. Carlos collects them and returns to his lands. There, on the coast, under the effect of the medicine of the mushrooms, they will receive the new sun.
