“If I have to die, I want to die my way” Maria’s time flows along with the river. She walks firmly, her hood up. A hand-to-mouth life, without dreams nor desires, spent taking care of her mother and at the service of a merciless, bejewelled old lady. With her brave-eyed Pit bull, Maria ferries pregnant women across the river, leading them to an infernal fate. But hope will pay her a visit, in its most ancestral and powerful form, as miraculous as life itself, teaching Maria that staying human is the greatest of all revolutions.
