Set in a small village in a Costa Rican Forest Nathalie Álvarez Mesen’s feature debut is a poetic and mysterious lament for personal freedom. Clara Sola (Wendy Chinchilla Araya) a withdrawn 40-year-old woman who lives with her elderly mother Fresia and teen niece Maria, has a learning difficulty and a spine malformation. Fresia will not permit Clara to undergo life changing surgery, as she believes any change to Clara’s appearance would be against God’s wishes and impact her ability as the village healer and mystic. With the arrival of handsome young worker Santiago, Clara experiences a mystical and sexual awakening as she begins a journey to free herself from the repressive religious and social conventions which have dominated her life.
