« Based on surprising, remarkable events that played out on a remote Chilean island in the 1880’s, this is part recreation of legend and history, part politico/religious allegory, part revenge story and part straight-up supernatural horror […] by using atmospherics as his anchor, the effect is submersive and compelling. »
Screen Daily


On the remote island of Chiloé in the late 19th century, an Indigenous girl named Rosa lives and works with her father on a farm. When the foreman brutally turns on Rosa’s father, she sets out for justice, seeking help from the king of a powerful organization of sorcerers.
