In Bolivia, images of a multi-storied shopping mall give way to shots of an elderly person in traditional dress, a shot of a statuette of the Virgin Mary and young people provocatively and playfully staring at the camera. A final image of a young person standing in a city street adorned as the Virgin Mary suggests the influence of religion of contemporary youth. A dog passes by, disinterested as the person remains frozen in their pose.
