Film Summary

Ana is a young woman who reflects on the meaning of the verb eat and what we are and have been based on what we eat. Ana tells us that, “It is the history of humanity that we eat. It is the people’s struggle that we digest in each food. Conquests, defeats, miscegenation mix in our digestive tract. Textures, fabrics, flavors, smells are the resounding witnesses of the way we devour our ancestors through food.”
