A young model runs away from the set of a commercial spot she’s filming, and enter the mansion of Araucaima, where its dwellers indulge in strange rites.
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
