There is a place among Honduras’s mountains where the customs and prayers articulate the passage of time.

An old woman walking barefoot on the mountain. A man dies, accompanied by an angel.

Spirits are the voices of our ancestors and the courage of a small indigenous community that has chosen to continue to care for the land rather than sell it.
