A 25 minute, heart-warming documentary taking you through the life of the Q’ero indigenous people, direct descendants of the powerful Inca. Living hidden in the high mountains of Peru after escaping the Spanish conquest, despite the tremendous hardships they endured, they maintained a deep respect, love and connection with nature, seeing it as a reflection of God, worthy of deep reverence and love. The beauty of their songs and rituals will touch your soul and open your heart.
