In Detail

On the end-of-the-world island of Chiloé in the late 19th century, a young Indigenous girl named Rosa (Valentina Véliz Caileo) lives and works with her father on a farm. When the foreman (Sebastian Hulk) brutally turns on Rosa's father (Francisco Nunez), she sets out for justice, seeking help from the king (Daniel Antivilo) of a powerful organization of sorcerers.

Based on remarkable events in the 1880’s, this is part recreation of legend and history, part politico/religious allegory, part revenge story and part straight-up supernatural thriller. Don’t expect jump scares or a traditional horror film about witchcraft, the wonderful landscapes and overall aura of Chiloé, and its cryptic folklore, is what will overwhelm you.
