One Good Friday morning, Doña Teresa sees Jesus’s face on the plantain she is frying. She immediately takes this as a sign from above and starts her own business. People from all over come to her altar to buy good luck charms and pray to St. Plantain for miracles and favors. An entertaining comedy about necessity, cunning and religious fanaticism.
