Based on the true events of 1600s Paraguay, this work tells the story of Chuiraquimba, who has lived all her life in the forests, the daughter of a powerful chief. She and her brother are welcomed into the Jesuit community and come to believe in the Christian religion. The priests move the tribe members over the falls along the Parana River to protect them from slave traders.
