South America, 1919. The indigenous peoples of the Guarani tribe have either fled, been exterminated or reduced to servitude. Julia, the wife of a landowner, gives birth to her third dead child. Desperate, she begs Kerana, her Indian maid, to bring him back to life. The creature returns, but not alone.

An eerie folk horror tale that punctuates its quiet horror with intense violence, Laura Casabé’s thoughtful exploration of power and complicity is a stark film that stays with the viewer long after it ends.
