An eight year old Peruvian girl dreads the impending birth of her younger brother during a time of intense socio-political turmoil in this incisive psychological drama from director Rosario Garcia-Montero. Peru: the early 1980s.
Upon learning that her mother Ines will soon give birth to a baby boy, young Cayetana vows that his first day in the world will also be her last.
As the months go by and her mother’s belly swells, the solemn girl senses death closing in, she begins to fantasize that a trio of national heroes she learned about at school will sweep her out of her home, and away from a country that’s on the brink of collapse.
