Synopsis
Catalina wanders across a vast salt lake under the blazing sun. According to her grandmother, the lake is made up of the dried tears of storytellers, for, in order for the sun to shine, a story must be sacrificed every day to the sun god Tata Inti. This is what the legend demands. Here in the highlands among llamas and cacti, Catalina is especially close to the sun. Catalina must remember her grandmother's stories because, when her grandmother dies, it will be Catalina’s turn.

Ketelîna li ser goleka xwê ya mezin û li ber tava dijwar a rojê sergerdan bûye. Li gor dapîra wê, ew gol ji rondikên hişik ên çîrokbêjan çêbûye, dako roj jî biçirisit, dibê her roj çîrokek jibo xwedawenda rojê Tata Intiyê biêt gorîkirin. Ya ko efsane dixwazit eve. Li vê derê, li bilindahiyên navbera ÎIamayê û kaktûsê, Ketelîna yekcarî nêzî rojê bûye. Dibê Ketelîna çîrokên dapîra xwe biînit bîra xwe ji ber ko, her gava dapîra wê bimirit, dora wê ye.
