Four years after his death, shaman Alejandrino Carupia visits his wife Teresa Bailarín in her dreams to tell her that he wants to be buried again. Upon the exhumation, Teresa is surprised to find his body mummified. Now, she must prepare the rituals to fulfil her husband’s wish to be buried in his hometown. At the same time, several members of the community fear that such action may cause Alejandrino’s spirit to transform into an “aribadá”, an entity that ruins the harvests bringing sickness and death.
