SINOPSIS.
Nicole es una niña de seis años. Vive con su madre en una casa en medio del remoto páramo. Una mañana, la madre le pide que vaya a buscar agua. Le advierte que la tome del manantial, donde es pura, y le prohíbe tomarla de la laguna, donde es turbia y podría traer algo extraño. Nicole sale de su casa y atraviesa el páramo en busca del manantial. Pero un encuentro en medio del camino hará que la pequeña enfrente su propio reflejo en las aguas de la laguna y tome una decisión moral con un resultado inesperado.

SYNOPSIS.
Nicole is a 6-year-old girl who lives with her mom in the middle of the Páramo (a kind of moorland in the Andes). One morning, the mother asks Nicole to go and find some water. She tells the girl to take the water from the spring where it is pure and warns her not to take it from the pond, where it is murky and might bring along foreign bodies. Nicole goes through the moor, looking for the spring. But an encounter on the road will face the girl with her reflection in the pond waters, leading her to make a moral decision with unexpected consequences.
