Photographer Mateo, visiting a celebration of the patron saint of a small village community, loses his shadow. Then, during a traditional funeral ceremony, a spiritual exchange causes him to lose his sense of the convictions that bind him to the "real" world. What ensues is a quintessential hero's journey in which he is forced to confront the question of what is left behind when you submit, unconditionally, to progress. He becomes, essentially, a trespasser into realms spiritual and sacred, where reality is denied by the senses. The local inhabitants both inform and challenge this unknown path: It is not until he accepts the loss of his shadow, and is able to face the woman who took it, that he will finally be able to recover it.
