A new battle is fought in the impassive fields of Yanahuanca. Several months after the Rancas massacre, the inhabitants of Chinche decide to put an end to the abuses by the authorities. They are directed by Fermín Espinoza, Garabombo, the mythical commoner owner of an exceptional and unique "disease" that makes him invisible before the eyes of judges, policemen and landowners. Protected by this unusual ability, Garabombo undertakes feats destined to become legendary; however, jail will teach you the limits of your exceptionality. Back in the village and with the experience of those who, like him, have been unjustly imprisoned, he unravels betrayals, convinces the disbelievers and builds schools in the middle of the steppe, with the supreme intention of organizing the recovery of what was taken from his family during centuries.
