    • Synopsis
    • Dauna is a young indigenous woman living in the Orinoco Delta of whom her father has fueled
      her desire for knowledge and given free rein to her restless nature. She´s married to Tarsicio, a
      good man who loves her, but suffers because he does not understand that Dauna wants to
      teach, research and spend hours outside the home. Tarcisio wants his woman to stay tied to the
      bed, the vegetable garden and fire, as tradition dictates. Despite Daun doesn´t get pregnant and
      this attracts the taunts and hints from friends, family and the whole community. Dauna runs
      away from her home but is immediately returned by her father to her husband as tradition
      dictates.
      Dauna strives to meet the wishes of her husband, according to the tradition, without abandoning
      the investigation of their culture in the company of Julio, the priest old friend of her father and
      her mentor.
      Tarcisio jealousy of the progress of his wife, her absences, and the increasing attention given to
      Julio, makes him fall in abuses that Dauna is not willing to tolerate.
      Dauna, who has not known an imposed education, has to face the choice between living a
      frustrated life beside her husband who she deppley loves or devote herself fully to her vocation,
      even at the risk of facing serious consequences.
      She dared to be different. She faced the ancestral practices of her culture and she paid the
      price. She made decisions which made herself suffer and others as well. Without giving up
      before defeats and loses, these led her to reconcile and become part of a legend herself.
