The film ‘Entre las Plantas’ (Among the Plants) portrays a Amazonian family who works and communicates with plants in order to help Peruvian and foreign people. In their garden they cultivate medicinal plants to heal and protect against negative energy. During the night, in ceremony, they communicate with the ‘mother of all plants’, Ayahuasca, who provides information on how to further help other people. With patience the filmmaker learns how plant, animal and human work together in this garden.
