El Chernobyl amazónico, como han calificado muchos expertos a la huella de Texaco en la Amazonia Norte del Ecuador, se mantiene latente en la tierra y sus entrañas, en el alma de los yayas.

Memoria viva de una calendario obscuro, el tiempo de Texaco cambió para siempre la vida de la selva y sus habitantes. Más de 600 mil barriles de desechos tóxicos fueron arrojados en las entrañas de la selva. Mas de mil doscientas piscinas de desechos contaminaron con "el agua de producción", el suelo y los ríos de una vasta extensión de tierra verde. Junto a la arcilla de la vida, las comunidades ancestrales, guardan en la memoria del tiempo, en el calendario de la vida, el rastro dejado por la febril época de la exploración y explotación petrolera de Texaco.

Esta película documental recoge el testimonio de esa realidad y su tiempo infame, el dolor de la tierra herida y la lucha de los pueblos que no se rinden. Un corake inclaudicable que por más de quince años, mantiene viva la esperanza de lograr, en la mayor demanda ambiental del planeta, la reparación de su habitat, una lección de humanidad que nunca debemos olvidar.

    "We may be ignorant people, but, excuse the term - it is not that I'd like to offend the government - he is the ignorant one who doesn't know what he is doing. 'Cause if he knew, he would've said 'no' to indiscriminate large-scale open-pit mining. He would have said 'No, let's go for other life alternatives!"
