Mariana Mpande, a traditional healer and leader in a remote Mozambican village, goes to the United States to publicize the experience of community management in natural resources that have changed the life of the region where she lives, an area rich in wildlife. Extroverted and communicative, Mariana captivates audiences of intellectuals in Washington, New York and Berkeley. Koro, the monkey, is a spirit that governs her healing activities. This spirit enters into communion with Indian spirits on a reservation in northern California, and with Hawaiian spirits in the crater of a volcano.
