The vivid, fantastic, erotic and humoristic portrait of those women lost in the cerros of Puerto Rico intertwining their lives around a plot of land; a plot of land of a father, a brother, or a lover who died in the USA and will never return; a plot of land around which they husk, and bury their dreams, their hopes and their frustrations. A world full of magic, santería, and conjurations. A girl coming of age searching for the murderers of her father, finding herself, and her dreams, in the fascinating island of Puerto Rico. Till the end of your life you will be haunted by the innocent sympathy of the sempiternal señorita Hermenegilda de las Mercedes, the cinematographic smile of Moriviví and the cognitive wisdom of Reverend Conchi.
