Synopsis


On his way from Heaven to Hell, Lucifer passes through the earthly paradise of Mexico, where elderly Lupita and her granddaughter Maria live. Lupita's brother Emanuel pretends he's paralyzed so he can drink and gamble while the two women tend to the sheep. Lucifer senses an opportunity and plays the miraculous healer. He forces Emanuel to walk again, seduces Maria and makes Lupita lose her faith. He didn’t bring bad luck, he only illuminated the line between good and evil, where it didn't exist before.
