Original drama, great music score, entertaining and beautifully shot!
20 November 2006 | by estudiobSee all my reviews

This is one of Puerto Rico's best movie ever. The scenarios, the educational content about Taino Indians is very educational. It is, very well acted. And it shows great photography during the movie. I know a lot of people that thinks that this is a movie to be in your collection. It is not a big budget movie but it is a well written script. Also there is a lot of emotion going on when you see it. The plot is very original and different from other Petrina movies. It contains a lot of action, fiction and suspense a very hard thing to find in other Petrina movies. This is a must See. Highly recommended. If you enjoy great music scoring you must own this movie.
