Movie Synopsis

English

Five women live in a large hacienda in rural Chile: matriarch Matilde, her three biological daughters and an adopted one. Any resemblance to Federico García Lorca’s “The House of Bernarda Alba,” however, ends there. On her deathbed, Matilde confesses to the village priest that she killed her husband 40 years ago and buried him inside a chest in the garage …a chest that contained another body. The news shocks the entire household and secrets long buried will now be made public in this dark comedy.

Español

Cinco mujeres viven en una casona en el área rural de Chile: la matriarca Matilde, sus tres hijas biológicas y una adoptada. Sin embargo, cualquier parecido con “La casa de Bernarda Alba” de Federico García Lorca termina ahí. En su lecho de muerte, Matilde le confiesa al sacerdote del pueblo que ella mató a su esposo hace 40 años y lo enterró dentro de un cofre en el garaje … un cofre que ya contenía otro cuerpo. Las noticias conmocionan a toda la familia y secretos enterrados durante mucho tiempo saldrán a la superficie en esta comedia llena de humor negro.
