Cousin Libardo becomes infatuated with Amparo, forcing her to live under his roof; the Animal's family, witness to her captivity. The community, threatened by Libardo, doesn't intercede. Forced to become the Animal's wife, Amparo cannot escape bearing his child. Will she, through love and temperance, survive and save her daughter; bringing an end to the cycle of violence her mother also was a victim of?

The awful truth
11 March 2017 | by julianbautista-46298See all my reviews

This movie shows the reality of my country.

It portraits perfectly how most of our people live, something that a tourist would never experience, the invisible majority. It also shows how vulnerable women are living in a place where justice is a luxury only people with money can afford.

I highly recommend this movie.
