A peasant’s wife goes out, supposedly to just buy groceries, but she also fucks a sergeant in a hotel in the process.
Abused adolescent Eliseo (Daniel Acuña) spends the night with his beautiful schoolteacher, Felipa (Blanca Guerra), after one of his father’s violent outbursts. Afterward, the previously poor student begins making excellent grades. Further suspicions are raised around the coastal village when the school’s principal, Felipa’s sailor boyfriend and several of the boys who teased Eliseo are found dead. Run out of town and accused of witchcraft, Felipa re-enters Eliseo’s life nine years later.
