Accused of the genocide of Mayan people, retired general Enrique (Julio Diaz) is trapped in his home by massive protests. Abandoned by his staff, the indignant old man and his family must face the devastating truth of his actions, and the growing sense that a wrathful supernatural force is targeting them for his crimes. Acclaimed filmmaker Jayro Bustamante, whose previous two films (Ixcanul and Temblores) are also gorgeous soul-stirrers, presents an urgent and frightening reimagining of the iconic Latin American fable.
