By Marvin González De León

Following years of estrangement, Moisés returns to his mother's home in the Nevada desert for his sister's wake. Set against an apocalyptic landscape where supernatural forces loom, old grudges are revived and secrets revealed as this family drama catapults into a mythic tale of Biblical proportion.
