Brief synopsis of the project: 

Based on a true story occurring in 1974, the film tells the tale of the sisters Justa, Lucia and Luciana Quispe, peasants from the altiplano who live a lonely life. Their recent mourning for the death of a sister and news arriving from the outside prompt the girls to have existential doubts that will relentlessly drive them to a tragic end.
