Synopsis
Every year, the indigenous Wixaritari people of west central Mexico go on pilgrimages to visit sacred locations in the mountain ranges in Jalisco, the Wirikuta Desert, and the Aramara Sea. Here, we get a rare glimpse into the customs, travel, and sacrifice that underpin their ancient culture. Honesty is at the heart of the Wixaritari belief system, and they learn to approach the camera much like they use peyote, to force the truth out.
