It’s the Day of the Dead (Dia de las Muertos) and the Burgos Family is getting ready to celebrate this important date to them. It is a yearly tradition in Hacienda Calvario where they get together to celebrate. As thjey share how this celebration has been of great value to their lives, they also explain the meaning of every element presented: why are altars made? What objects can decorate them? What food is eaten? Why it is important to have candles, the traditional “calaveritas (verses that rhyme)?
La Catrina (Death) roams around, reminding us that life is beautiful, and we need to take advantage of it. Where do we go after we die? That is the main question each character asks among them.
It’s a story between life and death where the ending will surprise the audience.
