Based on 14 months of fieldwork in an indigenous community of the Eastern Yucatan, the film explores the role and status of Mayan women within particular configurations of kinship and community. Through the protagonists' personal narratives, the film looks in particular at women’s labour conditions in relation to male work migration, and at their contribution to the household economy as producers of embroidery for the tourist market.
