For Guaraní people, the spider is the most sacred animal. When a child is born, they put a spider in the window of their hut to protect him from other insects, and some mothers, in the warm season, let the spiders build their web around the cots. Cobwebs ara also used to treat the wounds of the men returned from hunting. This is the reason why the web is the most precious gift. But it is also more difficult to fetch. Determined to give to his beloved one a precious cobweb, a boy enters the forest. There, he meets strange animals, and other mysterious cretaures... An enchanted tale of initiation into adulthood, which reminds us the delicate balance exixting between the life of our heart and the life of nature.
