La Llorona

La Llorona

Enrique Monteverde, a retired army general, is convicted of genocide committed during Guatemala’s military junta in the 80s, but the sentence is overturned on the grounds of a procedural breach, triggering rage and dismay to the public opinion. The Monteverde family is forced to barricade inside the premises of its luxurious villa, as the loop around Enrique tightens further. The spirit of La Llorona, the weeping woman of Latin-American tradition, is floating around the house, in search to make amends for the justice denied in the earthly world. A chronicle of atrocious memories, dredged with a layer of Magic Realism.
