LA VIRGEN NEGRA
Directed by

Belisario waits, his wife is very ill, he quietly works on his sheep as a strange healer comes to meet him. The healer has come to save Belisario´s wife and gives him the mission to climb the Andean mountains, near the glacier to bring a powerful object buried in snow that will be part of the ritual.  The wife´s luck depends entirely on Belisario and the choices he has made.
