Just like the medieval alchemists were obsessed with the so-called philosophical stone, a Sevillian dentist, who arrives at the Peruvian viceroyalty trying ot escape the Inquisition, studies the teeth’s worm that nests in the gums and causes extreme suffering. Neguijón is an inventory of culture and erudition in the Spanish Golden Century, a period of discoveries
and journeys, but also a period of nonsense and superstition.
