The Mbyá-Guarani community of Tamanduá is reached after travelling 13 km along a red dirt road into the middle of the forest in the province of Misiones in Argentina.

There are about 20 artisans, among the 140 people who live in the community. Two of the outstanding artists are Sabina Duarte, granddaughter of Dionisio Duarte, the founder of the community 44 years ago, and Alberto Velazquez.

The documentary describes the  artisanal work of Sabina, in the environment of her family, and the work of the wood carver Alberto Velazquez.

The  handicrafts are of superb quality, and are an expression of their art and culture, and constitute an important source of income, and a basis of their hope for a better future for themselves and their children.
