When Lupita witnesses the murder of a local politician whom she greatly admires, the ghosts of her past resurface as she tries to cope with the present. She quickly falls back into her old self-destructive habits and becomes a target of Mexico's corrupt political machine. As the powers that be kick into high gear to ensure the truth remains hidden, Lupita finds solace in the purity of indigenous traditions. While she learns how to live simply, like her ancestors, she comes to understand herself and rediscovers light within a dark life. And if there is hope for Lupita's redemption, perhaps there is hope for Mexico.

As a symbol of Mexico . . .
Lupita travels through a journey of alcoholism, drug addiction, corruption, and self-defeat, but her triumphs in the end suggest a return to the indigenous way of life as "Mexico's cure." Her healing process is unrealistic, but the indigenous motif symbolically portrays a lost nationalism and refreshes the soul for hope for a country that seems to be lost to the carteles. There are those who are still willing to fight for an honest government. ¡Viva México!
