Crime and death cover the people, so Guiexhuba Zapotec woman, will exercise justice in her own way. A foreigner, a politician, a priest and a chieftain, they come to take over the heart of an indigenous locality of Mexico, what they do not consider, is that it will not be easy for them and they will find great resistance. Taking advantage of the worldview of Zapotec culture will spread the rumor that the Bidxaa, that being that can be transformed into an animal, is killing the inhabitants of the place. Intimidation and violence will be the main elements of "those who have the power" to strip the Zapotec women who sell food at the Juchitan market; With Guiexhuba at the helm, this group of women will fight with all their might to defend their heritage so they will face any risk, even of losing their lives.
