Synopsis

Peru, in a small fishing port where the mentality of the village is deeply marked by tradition, Miguel, married and soon to be father is also in love with Santiago, a painter shunned by the village community for his homosexuality. Following an accident, Santiago disappears from the eyes of all except Miguel, allowing them to ‘openly' live out their passion….This ‘haunted' story firmly rooted in daily reality told in an enlightened, sensual and disturbing film.
