Luis Alfonso Londoño,
Amparo flees the convent and lands in a marginal neighborhood at her sister's house. 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?
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.
