ethnographic documentary | color | France - Argentine | 2019
In the suburbs of Salta, at the feet of the Argentinian Andes, Margarita lives through her tragic past and a precarious present, with infinite strength and the help of an invisible spirit… A mother, a friend, a miraculous goddess.
The invisible spirit of the Virgin of Urkupiña inhabits her life and her house by means of a statue, which is treated and cherished as a person.
Margarita takes us on a journey through her neighbourhood to meet other women who, like her, share the joys and struggles of life with this powerful woman.
