Three stories intertwine during the patron saint’s celebration in Oaxaca. María buries her mother, her father rejects her and, in uncertainty, she proposes to her childhood sweetheart to leave with her. Esteban returns after three years to discover his wife is living with another man; enraged he calls the village people to prosecute her in an assembly. Toña relives her own pain in the face of the abuse of her daughter when she returns to confront her family in order to protect her.
The revelation of an impressive voice and a new vision of the original Mexican communities. And finally, from the inside.
