Synopsis

In a mountain estate a group of Chileans make a radical decision: to leave behind their comfortable existence to isolate themselves in the country and practice an intense Christian lifestyle. It turns instead into a “dangerous sect” according to society, when one of its members dies in strange circumstances. Since then, a harsh judicial process has threatened their future as a collective. It’s a story about faith, social prejudice, and the fine line between normalcy and insanity.
