1969-“Estirpe”, was the first Spanish graphic novel by a troubled youngster under a pseudonym. He mysteriously disappeared after that. 44 years later, a production company that wanted to adapt it to the big screen hired María, a young lawyer to find the author and get the rights from him.
Set in the Aokigahara Forest, a real-life place in Japan where people go to end their lives. Against this backdrop, a young American woman comes in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared.
The epic story of the first contact, encounter, approach, betrayal and, eventually, life-transcending friendship, between Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman, last survivor of his people, and two scientists that, over the course of 40 years, travel through the Amazon in search of a sacred plant that can heal them.
