    • Synopsis
    • Madeinusa is a girl aged 14 with a sweet Indian face who lives in an isolated village in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range of Peru. This strange place is characterised by its religious fervour. From Good Friday at three o’clock in the afternoon (just when Christ dies on the Cross) to Easter Sunday, the whole village can do whatever it feels like. During the 2 holy days sin does not exist: God is dead and can’t see what is happening. Everything is accepted and allowed, without any remorse. Year after year, Madeinusa, her sister Chale, and her father Don Cayo, the mayor and local big shot, maintain this tradition without questioning it. However, everything changes with the arrival in the village of Salvador, a young geologist from Lima, who will unknowingly change the destiny of the girl.
