This documentary is in the tradition of Mondo Cane, and shows Peruvians and Bolivians behaving in savage, bizarre and unusual ways by modern Western standards. For instance, in one Inca-influenced area, a llama is sacrificed in the ancient way used before the Conquistadors brought Christianity to the region. In another, a museum's collection of ancient Incan pornographic pottery is explored. There are other scenes which are more repugnant, and are less easily described; at least one involves bestiality.
