An artist (Alejandro Ferretis) arrives at a remote Mexican village intending to commit suicide. Instead, he develops an unusual relationship with Ascen (Magdalena Flores), the elderly woman who gives him lodging. Together with Ferretis, Flores and one, uh, sexually obsessed horse, director Carlos Reygadas creates a ruggedly beautiful portrait of rural Mexico (with the mountain landscape serving as the main character).
