Rocío is a Mayan girl who lives up in the craggy highlands of Guatemala. When her pregnant mother starts having premature contractions, Rocío is sent to drive their herd of sheep across the mountainous pastures all on her own. Rocío is very young for such a task, and when she goes in search of a missing lamb, the rest of the herd wanders off. Rocío has to find how to rise to the challenge and to face her worst fears.
