A shocking, brutal tale that blends the dark history of Chile’s recent repressive dictatorial past with the seemingly modern and progressive Chile of today. The two worlds clash when a group of women ventures to the idyllic countryside for a weekend of fun. But their outing soon turns nightmarish when a victim of government torture stumbles upon them, unleashing his pent-up rage. Face to face with the depravity of man, the women must fight for their very lives. Director Lucio A. Rojas exposes the horrors of politics with an evil that can lie within the soul of ordinary men.
