Alicia arrives at her aunt and uncle's ramshackle inn, La Sirga, on the shores of a lake high in the Colombian Andes, having fled fighting in her hometown. By day, Alicia assists the couple in fixing up the inn, hoping the area's tourists will return next season; at night, perhaps due to the trauma she has witnessed, Alicia sleepwalks. Against this setting of calm natural beauty, a quiet drama of identities &mdash some healing, some hidden — will play out. Official Selection, Directors' Fortnight, 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
