Drama

In this ghost story set on the Peruvian coastline, Miguel, a handsome, young and beloved fisherman, and his beautiful bride, Mariela, are about to welcome their first child. But Miguel harbors a scandalous secret. He's in love with Santiago, a painter who is ostracized by the town because he's both agnostic and gay. When Santiago drowns accidentally in the ocean's strong undertow, he cannot pass peacefully to the other side. He returns after his death to ask Miguel to look for his body and bury it according to the rituals of the town. Miguel must choose between sentencing Santiago to eternal torment or doing right by him and, in turn, revealing their relationship to the entire village.
