A former circus artist escapes from a mental hospital to rejoin his armless mother - the leader of a strange religious cult - and is forced to enact brutal murders in her name as he becomes "her arms".
In a Chilean little town, the son of an uprooted couple, formed by a rigorous communist father and a loving but weak mother, tries to pave his own path in a society that does not understand their Jewish-Ukrainian origins.
after searching for years to find a copy of this long buried film, i finally found a copy. after watching it, i now know why this film never got released. this film is void of Jodorowsky's strange imagery and messages. all it's about is an elephant and a girl born on the same day, and about some bad guys that don't like the giant animals. the movie is in French, which i don't speak, but it doesn't take a genius to realize this movie is a waste of time.
