Synopsis

At the foot of the Andes Mountains in Chile lies an idyllic German colony called Villa Baviera (Bavarian Village). However, the beauty hides a grim past. This film explores how the residents of the colony use different strategies to cope with traumatic years of abuse, religious fanaticism and complicity in the worst atrocities of the Pinochet regime.
