Bits of found film and different types of animation illustrate a classic chase scene scenario: A woman is abducted and a man comes to her rescue, but during their escape they find themselves in the enemy's secret headquarters.

Driven by a desire for a better life and guided by the ancestral spirits of the house, José embarks on a mystical search for a cache of gold that is rumored to be buried in the walls of the mansion.

The Stains Of Time Are Ever Present in This Story and Its Reality
The first time i watched this movie, I was taken aback by the hypnotizing cinematography that hi-lighted the ruins of the house it is shot in. As the images presented theme-selves on screen, i realized that i was now way too involved in what was to happen with the characters. By the time the ending came about i was filled with a feeling of dread and hope, something that ached for weeks onwards.
But the impact the film had on me further grew as I researched more. The characters in the film, are playing themselves and reenacting a situation that is still happening to them. I've never heard of a movie do something like this, and the level of performance acquired from these suffering non-actors is something else. This is not something to be missed.
