    • Synopsis
    • Arnaldo owes a small weekend house in Marcos Paz, where he lives quietly with his dogs until a zombie gets into his property where he grows sweet potatoes to sell. The zombie turns out to be Mrs. María’s husband, his neighbor, who is into black magic. She murdered her husband after having a fight. Arnaldo, who now can’t keep on growing sweet potato because his backyard is now a graveyard for the zombie, makes a deal with Mrs. María: She will pay him rent and they will make her husband, who she can still control, work. They make a pact of silence which both will benefit from.
