Converging around a Mexican village’s yearly festival, this powerful drama depicts the upheaval created when three people who left return home. María comes to bury her mother but faces her father’s condemnation over her sexuality, Esteban seeks revenge for his wife’s infidelity, and Toña is compelled to address a childhood trauma that is impacting her daughter. With tension and empathy, this debut feature portrays the constraints on women’s lives within a culture of machismo.
