“Everyone in Cuzco wants to sell some mystery“
In a bid to save their relationship a Spanish couple travel to Cuzco – conquistador stronghold, Inca city of the puma and tourist paradise. But as the altitude sickness, pisco sours and layers of history take hold, they realise their journey has only just begun.
Set along the Inca Trail, this is a sharply contemporary portrait of a couple who become increasingly lost to one another, haunted by their own desires and the ghosts of their colonial past.
