The landscape is stunning and the wind constantly blows. The rolling hills of this little village in Puerto Rico are covered in tropical forest. The view from Elsa’s house is fabulous. Her husband has just died and her relatives have arrived to take their leave of him. Elsa observes with concern the relationship between her son-in-law and his daughter. Nonetheless, she continues to go about preparing food, hanging out the washing, picking berries, feeding the chickens and tending the garden. Only her face gives away her unease. An economically filmed yet deeply impressive portrayal of a sensitive topic by this female director.
