It's 1997 and Horacia has been in jail for murder for the last 30 years. Then new evidence turns up that proves her innocence -- and the guilt of her rich lover from her youth. Horacia is a free woman, but the decades behind bars have robbed her of everything. What remains is cold fury at the man who put her there. He is now even better off than before, but for fear of kidnapping barricades himself in his huge house. In the shadow of these walls, Horacia comes to know other creatures of the night: a transsexual prostitute, a homeless man plagued by demons and a hunch-backed seller of eggs. While they all become friends, Horacia waits patiently for an opportunity for revenge. Lav Diaz has created a visually stunning, archaic and deeply human drama about guilt and solidarity, absolution and revenge.
