A New York Times Critic’s Pick. In the Guatemalan highlands, a coffee plantation lies on the slopes of a smoking volcano. Here, a Mayan couple preparing their teenage daughter for marriage are met with a betrayal that will change their lives. This thrilling and gorgeously shot tale of a poor farming family, isolated from the rest of their country by geography, language and tradition, is a cinematic ode to indigenous culture and the many untold stories of women around the world.

“A mesmerizing, understated tragedy.” – Alissa Wilkinson,
