Synopsis: 

Elena, a Tsotsil woman from San Andrés Larraínzar, Chiapas, is challenged by the uses and customs of her people when an almost entirely male community assembly appoints her as a municipal trustee. As an authority, she introduces us to the complexity of the system of sociopolitical organization in San Andrés. During her term of office, the traditional practice of masculinity begins to be questioned.
