Description: Set at the turn of the 20th century on the tropical island of Curacao, this drama of magic, fantasy, and legend is an interesting blend of styles that also provides scenic views and musical numbers that maintain interest. Solem (Marian Rolle) is a village sorceress whose job is to keep away evil spirits and induce the gods to bring rain. (Since rainy and dry seasons alternate every six months, the gods seem pretty dependable.) While Solem is gathering herbs one day, she comes across a wounded man who is really a manifestation of one of the evil spirits in disguise - an Alma Sola or lone soul. A sorceress is supposed to remain a virgin, but this lone soul does the unthinkable and seduces her. After Solem gives birth, the villagers are no longer inclined to believe in her virtue. Solem, her baby daughter, and her helper Lucio are driven out of the village and face a period of hardship. To make matters worse, the father is now after her baby.~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
