Inspired by the name of a Texas oil town, Sour Lake was the name given by Texaco in the 1960s to a small town recast in the Ecuadorian jungle, known in Spanish as Lago Agrio. This name underlies the framework that the film builds: from the surroundings of this city to the Colombian Andes, where the jungle vegetation merges with the mountains. These geographical locations, interrelated with each other for centuries, are crossed by numerous economic, ecological, political and territorial problems. Portraits in movement integrate a last question about the relationship of these territories with the bodies that inhabit it.
