Wangki is the river that separates Nicaragua from Honduras, a borderland of Central America, where the Miskito people lives. The main characters tell their lives marked by moments of community, environmental scourges, memories of the guerrilla, fighting for human rights and the preservation of traditions. The film bears witness to the daily struggle of those who believe that preserving the balance between man and nature is the only way to build the future. What happens if the sirens of Wangki stop singing?
