Directed by Jorge Pérez Solano and starring Mayra Sérbulo (“Apocalypto,” “Mezcal,” “Y Tu Mamá También”), four-time Ariel Award nominee for supporting actress, “Espiral” is a lament to lost love and wasted life as well as a celebration of female independence.
With the desire to improve their lives and save their impoverished families, Santiago and Marcario — two men from Huajuan de Leon — emigrate to the U.S. in search of economic opportunities, not realizing they will end up destroying that which they love the most.
After their men head north, Diamantina and Araceli — two women from a small village in Oaxaca — are left to fend for themselves.
When the men finally return to their small village years later, they discover everything has changed and they may not be able to reclaim the past.
