Mayan roots, Italian mother. City life, simple life. Which would you choose? Well in Alamar, a couple decides to split up— dad is Mexican and likes a simple life in the jungle, mom is Italian and wants to return home with their 5-year-old son, Natan. The mom would most likely win this battle but before he goes, Natan's father decides to take him on a trip to teach him about his Mayan roots.
I can see the son not wanting to go back to Italy at the end of the film but who knows. Maybe they'll live happily ever after?
