AN EPIC TALE OF LOVE, VENGEANCE, AND BETRAYAL

The Story: Mexico at the turn of the century. A young Xochil Indian girl fell desperately in love with a man of Spanish lineage, and the great Xochil river has never forgiven her. Twenty years later she is married, and now the river will take its revenge upon her. Her husband will betray her, she will go mad, and the river will torment her until she sacrifices her only child, Sara. She will forever weep. This is the legend of La Llorona – the Weeping Woman. She lives in a perpetual state of purgatory, and each time someone calls out her name, she is forced to re-live her tragedy once again.
