Chaska is the story of a young girl from an Andean town called Kusillaqta, which for the last year has been branded with misfortune.

Chaska is selected by the Mayor to make an offering to the APUS (Mountain Gods). In her adventure she will travel across time, learn the real meaning of the divinities and will became a warrior. Chaska will understand that her journey has one mission: To save her town.


Scene 1: Chaska’s preparation for the party
Chaska is getting ready for the party. All of the women are dancing and dressing her, because she is the heiress of noble blood, even though she does not know it yet.

Scene 2: The town in misfortune
The town is waiting for the arrival of the light from the Chihuaco bird which signals better years to come. Their light does not reach the town and a storm breaks out, which is controlled by an Arariwa, a mythical Andean storm fighter. This is the beginning of Chaska's journey, who will be guided by an old wise man to accomplish her mission. The Ukuku joins in the journey.

Scene 3: Chaska begins her adventure
The wise man will show Chaska different moments of Andean history, so that she can learn from the gods and in this way discover her mission.

Scene 4: Kon: Creation and power from the gods
Chaska will witness the creation of the world by the God Kon. She will understand the importance of respecting the creator and the consequences that our earthly acts may have at any moment. Chaska will obtain a cloak piece from Kon with the help of Ukuku.

Scene 5. The Moche: Payment for the Earth
The Moche produced a ritual of sacrifice through the myth of the cup, with which they made a payment to the earth to calm the fury of the gods. The real lineage of Chaska will be obvious, she will find out the reason why she was chosen and will understand the importance of the sacrifice.

Scene 6. The Incas Final Conquest
By the XV century the Incas had conquered all of the Andes except from the Chancas. The Incas appealed for the gods to help them in their struggle against the Chancas. The Inca Pachacutec called Viracocha (Sun God) who inspired Anahuarque Mama to awaken the stones to become warriors and help conquer the Chancas. Chasca will identify with Anahuarque Mama turning into a warrior who will fight and get the strength to save her town.
