Description: Filled with symbolism, this metaphorical drama by Colombian director Carlos Mayolo is centered on an old mansion, isolated and ambiguous in its actual location. Revolving around the mansion is a static society made up of a pilot, landowner, priest, soldier, and other people representative of professions or occupations. This group is sustained by a kind of earth mother named Machiche (Vicky Hernandez) and has retained its status quo for a long time. A young girl (Adriana Herran) appears on the scene and starts to affect the group's long-held equilibrium until cracks, and dissensions begin to crumble the entire social structure.~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
