Synopsis

After being discovered dressing up as a Virgin, Amparo flees the convent in fear of her father’s rage. She lands in a marginal neighborhood of Medelliín as a freeloader at her sister’s house, where she’s introduced to her brother-in-law’s family. Cousin Libardo becomes infatuated with Amparo, sequesters her in a matrimonial rite and then forces her to live under his roof; the Animal’s family, witness to her captivity. The community, threatened by Libardo, does not intercede in Amparo’s favor, so she’s abandoned to perpetual vigilance. Forced to become the Animal’s wife, Amparo cannot escape bearing his child. Will she, through love and temperance, manage to survive and save her daughter, bringing an end to the cycle of violence her mother also was a victim of? Libardo moves her to a stolen ranch, where Amparo finds another intimidated woman he has locked up. She discovers herself now, not as a victim but as a witness, experience she refuses to live silently. Confronted with her reflection, Amparo overcomes the fear, liberating herself from the Animal’s grasp.
