Based on Gabriel García Márquez's novel, this film is set in colonial South America during a time of superstition and fear. A rabid dog bites 13-year-old noble Sierva María. Fearing her to be possessed, the family imprisons her in a convent. Pablo Derqui, the passionate young protégé of the bishop, Father Delaura, is sent to oversee her exorcism, but is unprepared to confront the demons within his own self that awake when he encounters her smoldering beauty.

With a cast of characters including nobles, philosophers, lepers and brigands, Costa Rican director Hilda Hidalgo’s debut feature is a masterful interpretation of this powerful and moving tale. Her dreamlike landscapes are a luscious counterpoint to the narrative backdrop of the smothering restraint of the inquisition, and the stunning but tender beauty of Eliza Triana’s Maria. The sensual tale also features famed Columbian actress Margarita Rosa de Francisco as Sierva Maria’s mother, the imperious Marquesa.
