A couple of years ago, Christian moved to Cocachimba: a poor village in the high jungle of Peru. Coming from the capital, the stigma of being a city guy hinders his integration with the local peasants. Nevertheless, he’s taken it upon himself to become one of them - it’s what he calls his “game”. Through anecdotes of hallucinations and fights, this newcomer sheds light on the gaps between two contrasting cultures and mentalities that coexist in one country.
