Indian villagers are led by charismatic Man of Mountains over a South American lake, through a jungle, across a waterfall and down a cavern to collect a bucket of water used in an elaborate ceremony to the rain-god Chac. Punctuated with unsubtitled Mayan hieroglyphics and the occasional supernatural special effect, Chac is probably primarily of interest to students of anthropology. The narrative consists mostly of unrelieved trekking, and remains resolutely free of drama despite a last-minute murder and some initial falling-about comedy involving an ineffective drunken shaman.
