Guillermo Casarin

Itzel, a young girl of Mayan descent, goes on a camping trip with her father deep in the jungle. As they stargaze together, Itzel’s curiosity leads her to wander off and explore. While wandering, she discovers a jaguar in captivity and, without hesitation, frees the majestic animal. However, their escape is short-lived. While trying to escape, she stumbles upon a mysterious lost Mayan city and experiences a vision of the city’s glory days, guided by a magical jaguar, called Balam.
