Madeinusa is a 14 year-old girl who lives in an isolated village in the Cordillera Blanca Mountain range of Peru.

Everything changes though with the arrival, at the village of Salvador, of a young geologist from Lima, who unknowingly changes the destiny of the girl.

Madeinusa es una joven de 14 años que vive en un pueblo de la Cordillera Blanca en Perú. Este extraño lugar se caracteriza por su fervor religioso, especialmente en una festividad en la que los lugareños pueden hacer lo que les plazca.
