A man leaves Mexico City for the remote countryside where he intends to end his life. There he finds lodgings with an old Indian widow, Ascen, in her ramshackle home overlooking a desolate canyon. In the vastness of this wild, breathtaking natural landscape, the old woman`s infinite humanity reawakens his dulled senses and desires. Inspired by the visionary cinema of Andrei Tarkovsky, Carlos Reygadas` extraordinary debut feature - stunningly shot in panoramic cinemascope - is an enigmatic and mesmerising meditation on the themes of death and rebirth, human strengths and frailty, and love and faith.
