2014 Contracorriente

An unusual ghost story set on the Peruvian seaside. Miguel is a handsome, young and beloved fisherman in a small fishing village in Peru, where the community has deep-rooted religious traditions. Miguel is married to Mariela, who is pregnant with their firstborn, but Miguel keeps a secret love affair with another man, Santiago, a painter from the capital. When Santiago drowns accidentally in the undertow, he cannot pass peacefully to the other side. He returns after his death to ask Miguel to look for his body and bury it according to the rituals of the town. Miguel must choose between sentencing Santiago to eternal torment or doing right by him and, in turn, revealing their relationship to Mariela and the entire village. Miguel is forced to deal with the consequences of his acts an to come to terms with who he really is, even if by doing so he stands the chance of losing the people he loves the most.
