DAUGHTER OF THE LAKE  They want to drain her lakes to mine gold. She will use all her powers to avoid it.  At the height of the Peruvian gold rush, Nelida, an Andean woman able to communicate with water spirits, uses her powers to prevent a mining corporation from destroying the body of water she considers her mother. A gold deposit valued at billions of dollars lies just beneath Nelida’s lakes and leads farmers and Latin America’s biggest gold producer into conflict. {English Subtitles}
