Stricken with a pathological fear she contracted from her mother's breast milk -- the "milk of sorrow," a condition suffered by women who were raped during Peru's civil wars -- Fausta (Magaly Solier) goes to extreme lengths to protect her own sexuality and safety. But when her anguished mother finally dies, Fausta finds herself compelled to embark on a frightening journey that could lead her to freedom and wholeness.
