The story takes place in Kenya, in the area called Turkana, the Cradle of Humankind. The area is inhabited by the nomadic tribe called Daasanach. A young scientist, Álvaro, sets up a research to explore the relationship between humans and nature. He becomes friends with a tribe member called Job, who shows him the daily life in the village. Alvaro is impressed by the stories and tales people share with each other, and starts to collect them. The stories feature the local wildlife which has disappeared from the area. At the same time, the tribe prepares for a Dimi ceremony, where they use the skins and horns of wild animals as ritual artefacts. Alvaro is shocked when he realises that the extinction of wild animals is caused by the tribal rituals. The people that once lived side by side with the wildlife, have gradually forgotten how to coexist with the nature.
