Overview

Two women from different cultures find their fates inexorably intertwined while searching for answers regarding the untimely deaths of their partners. Upon receiving word that her husband, Max Olivier Gourmet, has been killed in the High Andes of Peru, cynical war photographer Grace sets out on a pilgrimage to visit the place where her beloved was murdered. Max was an eye surgeon working in Peru when the citizens of a remote village began to fall ill due to mercury left over from an old silver mine. Unable to pinpoint the source of the illness, the local villagers placed the blame on the foreign doctors working in their region, and staged a deadly riot. Meanwhile, as Grace struggles to accept her devastating loss, Peruvian villager Saturnina continues to mourn the recent death of her fiancé, yet another unfortunate victim of the mercury contamination, and unearths irrefutable evidence that the deaths can all be attributed to the abandoned mine. As Saturnina prepares to blow the whistle on the mine, she finds a kindred spirit on Grace, and together the two women work to enact actual change despite the realization that their actions could have deadly repercussions.
