In Jurubirá, a small fishing village on the Colombian pacific coast, newborns are given powers through a mystical healing through the navel. This, accompanied by the sowing of the piece of umbilical cord at the root of a tree, allows the inhabitants of this zone to maintain magical virtues for the rest of their lives and a deep brotherhood with their land. A short documentary that celebrates the pride and sense of belonging represented in the tradition of ombligar.
