The film "Tainos" is about a young female archaeologist who plans an expedition with five friends to investigate Taino petroglyph in a remote and isolated place in the interior of the island of Puerto Rico. Taking her 500 years into the past, she discovers the last tribe of Taino's Indians who have been hiding and isolated from civilization in a secret place. It is written in history that they were exterminated. In the expedition there are a series of situations, suspicions and friction between two characters that initiates a conflict between them. Tainos is an adventure full of action that will take you to the past being in the present.
