The Mbyás are a branch of the Guaraní people, who live in Paraguay. The reduction, disappearance, and contamination of their spaces as a result of transnational soybean cultivation have them under threat of disappearing. For a whole night, in the darkness of a hut, the Mbyás will gather to celebrate a rite never before unveiled: the Opú ceremony. It is your last hope in the face of its extinction.
